Whether you're studying for your Masters or PhD, whether you're planning a career in academia or outwith - whatever your hopes for the future, your Careers Service is here to support you.  Maybe you know exactly what you want to do, maybe you haven't got a clue, or maybe you're somewhere in between?   Visit the Careers Service (Third floor, Main Library Building) to explore the resources and services we have on offer, and meet our friendly staff.  The information for postgraduate students on our website is an excellent resource also.
