Employability

We help students achieve their potential through: Career Mentoring, Placements, Internships and practical guidance on recruitment processes.

The Business School provides an environment that allows students to maximise their potential. The behaviours, values, skills and attributes that we expect our students to develop will prepare them for their future careers.

 Our wide range of Employability projects and team of advisers will help you develop your skills, confidence, professional connections and knowledge of the job market

  • GEP Scheme brought an awareness on how valuable different experiences and activities are to my development. Furthermore, it motivated me to engage in as many extra-curricular activities as possible, as there are rewards offered for students to achieve.

  • This experience prepared me for real interviews and made me feel more confident in my skillset. I am thankful to the BSEO and EY for making this kind of opportunity possible!
