What can I do with my degree
Sometimes it’s not immediately obvious what kind of career your degree will lead to. With the rise of creative, non-vocational course subjects, more graduates are leaving university with the potential to thrive in a wide range of industries.
More and more employers are favouring the experience of extracurricular activities and achievements over a final degree classification. This means what you can do with your degree relies on how you use your spare time while studying. Develop your transferable skills and competencies through voluntary or part-time work, internships, work shadowing, finding a mentor, or taking a part-time course.

Don't lose hope
Many graduates find themselves in a career unrelated to their degree. If you find that your degree cannot lead you to the career you want, you might have the option to complete conversion, professional, or a master course to set you on your preferred path. Always seek the advice of your Careers Consultant before making these important decisions.
