The support

We recognise the pressures all students face and we want you to gain as much as you can from your time as a postgraduate student which is why, at every step of the way, we have a team of people on hand to provide help and advice. Particular attention is given to providing careers support through:

a visiting speaker series                      careers fairs                            mentoring programme

networking events                               workshops.

And when you leave, the support continues as you will automatically join the Alumni association, a group of over 30,000 people in 140 countries, the majority of whom hold senior management positions. The association offers opportunities for networking and keeping up to date with news and continuing education.
