How to plan your career in your final year

Written by Anne Delauzun, Careers Consultancy Manager

As you reach the end of your course, we hope you’ve found studying to be an enjoyable and enriching experience. Perhaps the past few years have confirmed your passion for your subject and you’ve decided to pursue a career in a related field, or maybe you’ve discovered new interests and decided to take a different direction.

Even if you’re still unsure, Careers will support you to take positive steps towards the future you want.
