Hi Chandu!

 

Getting a job in the United Kingdom is challenging. Those who got a job participated in internships during their third year and were selected for the graduate job. If you are planning to apply for MA/MSc program, you should apply for graduate schemes since day 1 for all opportunities. If your marks are high, you have required experience, and you are active, recruiters may consider you! Nevertheless, it is incredibly challenging. Especially if you are an international student, and it applies to every international student everywhere in the UK.

 

Most people are either continuing their studies in the UK or returning home and securing their job there with their UK diploma.

 

Regards,

Rostyslav

Hi Chandu, University career services assists students with job opportunities. If you could provide details on your course and country, we could try and find an alumni to provide you additional information.

Hi! Currently my class is working on our dissertation so we have not begun to search for jobs, of course during lockdown though there were not many job opportunities available. However, we have been seeing that job opportunities are beginning to pick up again and will continue to do so.

That's great to know! Are there any opportunities at the university for part time? Specially for students like myself who have a sizable industry work experience if that helps.
Marc Ensch

This will depend on the course you have applied for. Can you tell me which one this is? Most of our courses have some form of industry engagement (e.g. guest lecturers, summer projects with companies). You may wish to ask the same question in the relevant department chat room. Thanks, Marc
