Right from the start, we are committed to helping you plan your future career. During your first year, as part of the University's Employability Strategy, you will be encouraged to develop and articulate your own 'employability plan' with the help of staff from the Careers team.
We caught up with some of our recent graduates to find out what they are doing now.
Careers staff will help you with your plans, and to take full advantage of the range of opportunities for developing your employability through studies and extra-curricular life.
Our aim is to ensure that:
After graduation, you will be welcomed into a worldwide network of more than 80,000 York alumni across 16 countries.
The University also provides alumni with a range of professional networking opportunities throughout the year, at events and online.
Careers offers projects, training, volunteering, work experience and talks to help you make the most of your time here.
Mentors and business advisers are on hand to help you realise your ideas - and to demonstrate your commercial potential through the new University Enterprise Zone.
Our Languages for All programme gives you the chance to take a course in a foreign language alongside your studies. First year undergraduates are entitled to take one language course free of charge.
York Award is a unique, employability certificate of the University, awarded alongside your degree and valued by employers. Everything you do while at York, which involves developing employability skills, counts towards the award.
Volunteering is an excellent way of supporting your local community as well as developing valuable work and study skills.
There are many opportunities to have a unique experience you will remember forever, as well as demonstrate your adaptability and flexibility by having lived and studied abroad.
