Employability skills development

Student voice

“These activities have made my options after graduation a lot clearer and have taken away the pressure of trying to research and learn everything on my own. They helped me find out where to look for graduate opportunities, improved my CV, and increased my confidence in preparing for future interview situations.”

Abi Kinsella, BSc (Hons) Geography, Year 3
