Developing employability in undergraduate and postgraduate students is complex and requires a multi-faceted approach. At UEA employability is being addressed through curricula development, School and Faculty initiatives, Careers Service central programmes and activities involving the Alumni Office, Students Union and other departments.
Our careers advisers work closely with academic staff tasked with improving student employability in their Schools. This ensures that employability initiatives utilise local academic expertise, wider University resources and involvement from externals, alumni and employers. Careers advisers also collaborate closely with colleagues in the UEA Careers Service who manage internships, career mentoring, enterprise activities, events and job vacancies.
