After your studies

Smiling student

We hope that during your time at York you will have developed some valuable skills that can be carried forward in your career either in your home country, here in the UK or elsewhere in the world. We also hope that your relationship with the University does not end once you graduate.

Keeping in touch

The Development and Alumni Relations Office offers its members a special range of services including ongoing careers advice and continued networking opportunities through the email directory and mail forwarding service. In addition, they will organise and publicise alumni events in your home country as well as in York.

Leaving the UK

If you will be leaving the UK, make sure that you let appropriate people know, update your contact details and arrange for removal of your belongings.

Working in the UK

If you currently hold a student visa, and plan to work in the UK after your studies, you will need to look at what other visa options are available for working in the UK

Further study

Our Careers service offers advice and information on opportunities for further study, both within the UK and in other countries.

Information on the kind of visa you will need to continue your studies in the UK is also available on the Working in the UK page.
