Create your career plan and explore your options in the Career Studio

Identifying what you want to do today, tomorrow or on graduation isn’t always easy. Our team of student Career Coaches are here to support you through every element of your career journey, from exploring your future possibilities to perfecting your applications for part-time jobs, placements or graduate roles. 

Guided by the Career Coaches, you will have access to a suite of specialist tools and resources designed to ensure you feel confident and prepared for your future career.

“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.”

Amelia Whittle, History student

Your Future Plan reminded me that the university is not only delivering academic knowledge but also supporting me on my career.”
