Careers Future

Careers support for finalists

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We know that any exam period is busy and potentially stressful, but if you’re also worrying about what’s next for you, try not to. You’re definitely not alone if you’re still unsure of your plans or what you want to do, and there is still plenty of support and lots of opportunities available through the Careers Service.

Future Fortnight: Monday 12 – Friday, 23 June

Once exams are out of the way, the Careers Service is hosting Future Fortnight to help you prepare for life after graduation with a series of in-person and online careers events designed specifically for final year students of all degree levels. Sessions include career planning, understanding the skills employers want, interview support plus Q&A sessions and drop-ins. See the full schedule.

Manchester Graduate Talent Internships

Want to work in Manchester after graduation? Our flagship Manchester Graduate Talent (MGT) programme provides paid graduate-level jobs exclusively for UoM students, and new vacancies are being advertised now. Get your first role as a staff member here at the University, or with one of our partner organisations. There’s a dedicated information session on the 19 June, designed to give you an insight into the different MGT jobs on offer and the chance to hear from some of previous MGT participants about their experiences.

Find out more and see current vacancies.  

Work Experience Bursary

We want to help you with the costs of undertaking career-related work experience.  If you’re graduating soon and have work experience lined up before the end of June, you may be entitled for funding. Find out more about the Work Experience Bursary.

Postgrad study

If you’re not ready for your studies to be over, it could be a good time to explore what a Masters degree could offer you. Take a look at our recent student news article, or look at attending the dedicated session about Masters study during Future Fortnight if you are interested in further study.

Careers Online Tools

Whether you want to practice interviewing, have your CV checked, or need to prepare for graduate scheme assessments, we have loads of free online tools which allow you to learn at your own speed, whenever and wherever you want. Access online resources.

Also, remember you can access the Careers Service post-exams, and for up to two years after you graduate, take a look at the Careers Service website for more information.
