24/7 access to placements and work experience

Identifying what you want to do today, tomorrow or on graduation isn’t always easy. The Your Future Plan questionnaire helps you assess where you are and where you want to go, from your first year of study to your last.

With the Your Future Plan questionnaire you can explore your options, decide your course of action and achieve your goals. Shape your personal future plan in discussion with your personal tutor and in one-to-one sessions with our knowledgeable careers consultants and work placement coordinators.​

“The careers service here have a wealth of knowledge and advice! To all students, I would definitely say to start thinking about potential options sooner rather than later to utilize the resources at the University of Gloucestershire.”

A full programme of regular employability events

Whether you have a placement as part of your course, want to get involved with your community or simply want to get experience and make a bit of money, you’ll have access to hundreds of work experience opportunities.​ Our work placement coordinators are available to help on every campus.

“The internship has been so relevant to my course as it has given me direct experience. I have gained confidence, strengthened my time-management and communication skills, and improved through creating relationships with business owners.”
