Studying at the University of Liverpool brings with it numerous career benefits. Supporting you all the way will be the University’s Careers & Employability Service – one of the UK’s most innovative and dynamic university careers services. So you can be confident that you are making a sound decision for your future career by choosing us.
Enhance your employability
Being employable is about attitudes and skills, confidence and drive – it means being able to choose a career, apply effectively and be successful. As the world of work changes and organisations evolve, employers are increasingly searching for graduates not just with a degree but with the right blend of skills, knowledge and experience – graduates who can make a difference in any situation. That’s why at Liverpool we are focused on developing your employability while you are studying in preparation for life after graduation.
