Careers & employability support for international students

As an international student, studying in the UK is an exciting step towards developing yourself into a truly global graduate. Employers all over the world value the skills you bring in terms of languages, cultural awareness, resourcefulness, resilience and your ability to adapt to a new culture. 

The Careers & Employability team provide a number of different resources to support you to develop the necessary skills for finding work during your studies and when you graduate. Our Careers Advisers will support you in your search for part time jobs during your study and permanent graduate jobs after your course completion at BU. They give feedback on your CVs & Covering Letters, run careers and employability workshops, offer practice interviews and give general careers advice and guidance. Find out more on the Careers & Employability pages or visit the team in the Careers Centre (outside the library, Talbot Campus).

Careers workshops

The way you find a job in the UK may be quite different to how you would do it in your own country. To support you in understanding the UK job market and recruitment processes we run a number of workshops aimed specifically at international students. These provide information about the UK job market and support on the application process.
