We believe that anyone with the potential to succeed at University should be given the opportunity to do so. We also want to do more to ensure that students from all socio-economic backgrounds have fair access to the range of graduate opportunities and successfully make the transition into their chosen area with confidence.
The Equality Act 2010 protects jobseekers and employees from discrimination on the basis of certain characteristics such as age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. We will be adding more information and resources to these pages over the coming months and will provide you with individual, confidential support around equality and employment within one-to-one career guidance interviews.
All students can access support from the Careers Service from the day they enrol and can continue to do so for life. This includes all our events, workshops, one-to-one coaching, advice and guidance and our Careers portal, MyCareer.
We understand that some students may have additional barriers to overcome in order to develop their career. With this in mind we have developed a range of targeted initiatives and resources to help less-advantaged students develop their professional network, gain an insight into different work sectors, access new experiences and develop their employability skills.
