How we work with Schools

Find out more about how the Careers Service works with Schools to create careers events and workshops for your students

We can work with you in a range of ways to create bespoke, tailored workshops and events for your students.  You'll see some examples of our work in Schools where we have collaborated with academics and colleagues from other departments including Development and Alumni below.

Please then get in touch with us if you'd like to discuss some ideas.


Some examples of our work in Schools

We support Schools across the University with developing events including:

  • 'Making the most of your time away' - a talk and social event for second year Business School students embarking on a year abroad
  • Developing a series of online sessions on CVs and LinkedIn for online distance learning students in the Vet School
  • 'Preparing for and presenting your project experience' - interactive workshops for the School of Physics and Astronomy's Career Development Scholarship Programme
  • Supporting the History of Art Toolkit - a series of lunchtime workshops to help students build study and wider life skills in Edinburgh College of Art
  • Application and interviews workshops for Sport and Recreation Management students in preparation for a compulsory placement in the Moray House School of Education & Sport
  • Working with the School of Engineering to support industrial placements including a post-placement workshop helping students to consider what they have learned from their experience
  • 'Chemistry: From Concept to Consumer' - workshops in the School of Chemistry supported by employers who provide case studies of typical issues where students try out different roles 
  • A workshop to support first year students in the School of Maths to focus on how they will develop themselves during university
