Careers support for PhD students

Our postgraduate careers team help doctoral students explore and develop their career options. We offer individual career coaching, skill development events, guest lectures and an online careers resource area. 

We can support you whatever you decide to do next – whether that’s an academic career, or in industry, consultancy or management.

Postgraduate careers consultants

We work with you in a tailored and flexible way whether you’re an aspiring academic or looking to build a career outside of academia.



I strongly recommend seeking assistance from the PG Careers team. They advised me on how to improve an application and then helped me to prepare for the interview. The consultant was kind and supportive all the time.
