Student Opportunities

This area of our site is dedicated to what students can do to get involved and make the most out of their time at university!

What can we do for you?

A degree can be essential for getting the type of job you've always dreamed of, but now employers like to see more than just that. Demonstrate to them that you have real world experience and you will be making yourself a lot more valuable. We know that not everyone has the same amount of time to spend doing extra activities, so we have been working closely with the Career Development Service to come up with different options.
