What can I do while I’m at university to “Go Further”?

There are lots of employability-enhancing activities available through QUB.  Here are a few suggestions that may be of particular interest to students on your degree programmes.

Any year:

Level 1:

Level 2:

Look for relevant summer work and build your skills throughout the academic year:

  • Large companies in all sectors interested in engineering students offer year-long placements and summer internships. MyFuture, Ratemyplacement, Prospects, Targetjobs, and GradIreland are useful sites for finding these. Gradcracker is a particularly useful site for finding STEM placements and internships. Many of the deadlines are set around December or earlier so it’s best to start applying in autumn

Level 3:

  • Apply early for graduate schemes and / or postgraduate study. Be aware of very early closing dates for some postgraduate courses such as the PGCE.
  • Are you clear about which career option you want to follow? Participate in the Alumni Career Mentoring Scheme.
  • Plus above opportunities for any year.

PGT:
