Career paths


The more you know about careers the more confident you will feel about identifying those that interest you and match your skills and abilities.

Use these pages to help you find out about:

  • what the job involves
  • the qualifications, skills and personal qualities required
  • where job vacancies and internships are advertised
  • developments within the industry or sector (commercial awareness)


I've just read your careers page and it's absolutely one of the most informed and up-to-date space-specific ones I've seen at a university. I found my current job on so it's great you're sharing it!
