Pointing the way to success

All activities are mapped against the ‘Plymouth Compass’, our set of key attributes specific to the Plymouth graduate. Many of them can also be recorded in your Higher Education Achievement Report

This is a chance to shout about your success outside of the classroom, demonstrate your passion and show qualities valued by employers.

“Get involved with/in as many things as possible, the more activities and work placements you can take on the better. Graduate employers want you to talk about so many different situations and demonstrate lots of skills, so the earlier you get involved the better. I attended networking evenings, employer presentations, joined the Enactus society, undertook practice interviews, had a placement year and worked as a Student Ambassador all of which helped me build my confidence and presentation skills.”
Hannah Yarr, BA (Hons) International Business Year 4
