Our courses are designed with your career in mind, with most developed in partnership with employers to ensure the skills, knowledge and experience you gain match the needs of your chosen profession.

Professional accreditation

Many of our courses provide additional professional recognition or exemptions. 

Work placement and study abroad

A period of work placement or study abroad is available with most of our courses. 

This provides the opportunity for you to gain valuable real-world experience and to build contacts in the industry.

Career Development Centre

An extensive range of support services is available to help you get ready for work and to find employment. 

Our award winning Career Development Centre (CDC), located on each campus, offers friendly and impartial support with career planning and provides advice on developing your employability skills.

Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)

We provide a Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) to all graduates - a detailed record of your academic and extra-curricular achievements to supplement the traditional degree award. 

The HEAR allows you to showcase your achievements to employers or postgraduate tutors and helps your development during your time in higher education.
