Like you, we are already thinking ahead to what you will do after the achievement of your qualification. We want you to have a fast-track into the world of well-paid and fulfilling employment that gives a rapid return on your investment in studying in London.

Employability is about gaining experience as well as expertise. Wherever appropriate and possible, we develop your real experience in areas that are relevant to your journey towards becoming a highly capable individual and a strategic leader of the future. We place great importance on engagement with the worlds of business, finance and other sectors where our students aspire to gain employment.

This engagement takes many forms, ranging across consultancy projects that address specific issues faced by client organisations, to specific training in work-related areas such as business analysis and leadership development.

At the heart of our network is the Careers and Employment Service who provide you with a range of services including an online careers portal (including employer videos, practice psychometric tests and other resources), workshops, and one-to-one appointments.

In addition to this, there are even more ways that we support our London Campus students to meet their career aspirations through our partnership with QA Higher Education.
