Careers & Enterprise Centre

Open Days / Visit Days

It's never too soon to start planning your future and the Careers & Enterprise Centre is here to help even before you arrive at university.

For inspiration on getting started, research the following:

The Careers & Enterprise Centre supports the University’s Pre-application open days and Post offer visit days. Our Careers Advisers deliver talks to prospective students at the Open Days but visitors to either day are welcome to call in to see the Careers Centre and to pick up literature and resources that are available to help students make well informed careers choices.
