Students take early opportunity to boost their careers
Dozens of first year students went along to Mappin Hall yesterday (23 February) to find out about different work experience opportunties.
In total, 230 students from across the seven science departments went along to the Careers Service’s Work Experience: Science event to see what opportunities are available.
There, they could find out about different ways to put their scientific skills into practice while they study, for example, by doing a degree with employment experience or finding part-time work through the Student Jobshop.
The aim is top help students develop hands-on skills that will make them more employable when they graduate.
Staff can find out more about how to support students with employability at the Careers Service Conference taking place on Tuesday 10 March.
The theme of the conference is Developing learning opportunities outside of the University: a placement perspective and the keynote speakers include the Faculty of Science Director of Learning and Teaching, Professor Alistair Warren.
