How we support employability

The University of Brighton works hard to ensure its students leave ready to launch their careers. We do this through providing work placements and volunteering opportunities, careers services and mentoring. Our dedication to employability means that, even in the current climate, 92.9% of graduates, postgraduates and holders of other awards are employed, or in further study, within six months of completing their courses.

Find out more about employability, what employers want from graduates and how we support graduates to develop their skills.

A part of Student Services

The Careers Service is a part of the University of Brighton Student Services department. For further information on what students can expect from us, including making a complaint, see the Student Services Statement of Service (pdf).

We work with employers, recruitment agencies and the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS), and the National Association of Student Employment Services (NASES) to ensure best practice in recruitment.
