You’ll have a careers module scheduled as part of your degree – this is designed to provide some key information, develop some core skills, and provide space and time for careers thinking – but it’s not sufficient in itself. Henley Careers & Professional Development is here for you throughout your degree, so don’t leave it all to later, because later never comes.
There are lots of new terms and concepts to learn whether you’re looking to gain some experience, find work for the summer, or are looking for an opportunity post-graduation. We can help and guide you through all of this via 1-2-1 appointments, workshops, events and online via the Henley Careers blackboard site

- have 1-2-1 appointments to explore options, improve applications and practise interviews;
