Just started uni? About to graduate? We help you explore your future career options, whilst offering you careers advice and resources. This section also offers information on professional qualifications, work placements, further study and working abroad.

The Profession Finder has listings of more than 300 professional bodies with a wealth of information on different professions; you can also browse the Career Sectors for an overview of the routes, qualifications, jobs, salary information and more in these sectors.

Professional Career Chooser

In our Professional Career Chooser section we offer advice to help students and graduates choose the right career in the professions with:

  • careers advice tailored towards graduates entering the professions, and
  • information on fair access.


Professional Qualifications 

If you're looking to study specifically for the professions, our Professional Qualifications section has everything you need to know about:

  • professional qualifications and
  • what funding is out there.


Further Study

Considering postgraduate or further study? We have a section dedicated to providing you with guidance for making decisions about:

  • what to study, 
  • where to study, and
  • how to fund further study.


Work Placements and Internships

Starting early with gaining work experience is a great idea while you're studying - don't leave it all until graduate placements, although these are a good option when you finish your studies. This section has:

  • information on work placement websites and resources, and
  • sector-specific work placement listings.


International Career Opportunities

If you're not sure what to do but like the idea of life abroad, our International Career Opportunities section has information on:
