Improve Your Employability

At university you have many opportunities to develop new skills and further enhance existing ones. In addition to the skills related to your subject, your course can develop communication, teamwork, time management, negotiation and problem-solving skills through group work, presentations, written reports and research.

Employability skills can be developed through activities like work experience, volunteering, being part of a sports team, taking on a leadership role in a student society, or organising fundraising initiatives.

For more information see the "Work Experience and Internships" section our Careers Guide online.
