Careers and Enterprise

For graduates

If you have graduated and are still working out your next steps, then we would love to support you in finding work or applying to further study and can do that up to 2 years after graduation. In particular, you may want to book a one-to-one appointment with a Careers Consultant, watch one of our webinars or read our blog for advice on a range of career-related topics.

Great Grad Job Hunt videos

Watch the video diaries of graduates from across the University of London seeking work after university to learn what worked for them, and get advice from careers professionals on finding work after university.

Keep in touch

Fifteen months after graduating you will be asked to complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey to find out what you've been doing since you left us. We'd really appreciate you filling this in, as the anonymous survey results help us to inform current and prospective students about what they can do with their degree from the Queen Mary. They also, importantly, affect Queen Mary’s University rankings and our reputation.
