ARU works with employers to make sure that students graduate with the skills and abilities that modern businesses need. Students can also get hands-on experience with the university’s partner employers, work-based projects, internships and placements.
Alternatively, they can give back to the community by participating in the volunteering scheme.
ARU’s Employability Service offers career advice and puts on regular events, from CV surgeries to company visits. The Employment Bureau can help students find a part time job, or for budding entrepreneurs, they can test out their business plan at the virtual support hub, and even compete for funding in the annual Big Pitch Competition.
Looking to work internationally? As part of a student’s career development, all students at ARU can learn a new language alongside their main studies.
All this adds up to great career opportunities for students, as evidenced by the university’s Athena SWAN Bronze Award.
ARU students on Postgraduate Search say:
“I have gained a lot of confidence in myself as a researcher, presenter, networker, and person. This has occurred through participating in research training events, presenting at seminars, and working on conferences at the University.”
“The employability service has an accredited pathway which increases your employability skills in a targeted fashion, and allows you to register accomplishments to this end.”
“I am more knowledgeable about the practice and way to tackle things.”
