Our graduates move into a wide range of careers, using the skills and intersts they picked up during their time with us to guide them.
"I have been involved in the Nottingham Spring Internships Scheme, Digital Marketing Academy, and Nottingham Advantage Award – the related modules have given me an insight into working at SMEs, global corporations and charitable firms."

"My career aspirations are an ongoing process. At uni I’ve been involved in being a course rep and The Education Network which has given me the opportunity to look at how you can make the educational experience better, which has led me to consider teaching."
"We went into a primary school and did some philosophy sessions. It was really fun. Kids are asking questions all the time that are helping them to form a view of society, the world, culture, right and wrong."
"The job of a translator is to transfer information from one language into another. That's the central underpinning. It focuses exclusively on written content and can vary in size, complexity and subject area."
"It had always been my dream to work in TV. Eventually, I got accepted to an ‘Office Runner’ scheme at Fremantle. I started out doing general admin in an office where shows like Grand Designs, Escape to the Country and The Apprentice were being made."
"My job is to facilitate the successful management of English Heritage's reserve collection. I love the way that museums can inspire discussions. I wanted to be part of a team that helped to tell our nation's story in a fun and inspiring way."
"I don't really have a set career in mind, there's so many different roles I'd love to take on. But what I always come back to is how I know that history and politics has given me skills that I can use in a multitude of areas. I feel like there’s a lot of options."
"A lot of my career choices were based on ‘I’m not ready to decide yet and want to learn as much as possible until the time that I do’. I've always been someone who likes to try a lot of different things."
"I’m still not entirely sure what I want to do, but I’m looking at the forces and going in as a musician. It’s performing in a professional career in music but without having to go to a conservatoire and getting regular performance travel opportunities, which really appeals."
"I was told from the word go, ‘you’ve got to be able to present your argument’. Now, I am negotiating with sub-contractors over price! History gives you the confidence to do it on a piece of paper. If you can do that, you can do it verbally."
"Classics to digital sounds like a big leap but actually the skillsets are the same. It's about having an analytical mindset and being creative with content. A grounding in structure, analysis, editing and critical thinking is vital to so many roles."
"The music modules definitely had a big impact on where I am now. In particular, a music performance module, where I had an amazing teacher. She got me to sing everything from musical theatre to jazz. We discovered that my natural ability was in musical theatre."
