One to One Support
The Careers+ service offers confidential advice and guidance by phone, online or in person. You can book an appointment or send us a query on this website.
All our Career Consultants are professionally qualified, and operate within the University Equal Opportunities Policy Statement. We operate a student-centred service, which means that the appointment will focus on what is important to you – your questions, priorities and needs. You will be treated with respect and receive a friendly, professional service. The information, advice and guidance provided will be impartial and up-to-date.
