Employability is a very important aspect of all the School’s degree programmes. We use a wide range of assessment methods in our teaching that enable students to develop and practise a number of skills, which are highly valued by employers.
As well as encouraging students to attend frequent university-wide careers and employability events, we have our own individual careers programme offering a number of economics focused events. These include careers coaching workshops, alumni speakers discussing their career paths and offering advice on securing employment.
