Virtual Career Studio

When you're not on campus you can video call us on Zoom Monday- Friday from 10am- 5pm. No appointment needed, just drop-in virtually.

Our Career Coaches are committed to providing you with the support you need. That's why they've moved the Career Studio onto Zoom for students and graduates to drop-in virtually.

Introducing the Zoom Career Studio

The Virtual Career Studio is powered by Zoom and the experience is very similar to the on-campus Career Studio. It's a virtual space, led by students, for students, empowered by career experts.

Our team of Career Coaches are now online, waiting to help you to explore, connect, and apply.

What to expect

As soon as you click the 'Drop-in now' button on this page you will be redirected to the Zoom waiting room where you will see a welcome message. The hosting Career Coach will appear to talk to you about your needs and explain the next steps. The next available Career Coach will then meet you in a separate Zoom room.

At the end of the meeting, a Coach may follow up-by sending you some useful information or resources, and you'll be invited to give feedback on your experience.
