Creating global talent

Employability

The skills and talents you develop at BU today will open up a world of opportunity tomorrow: enabling you to work around the world, influence global thinking and lead innovation.

Academic excellence is just the starting point for the education you’ll enjoy at BU. Our courses allow you to gain real-world experience all the way through your studies – from the invaluable work placement opportunities we offer every student, to collaborations with business and overseas exchanges.  

Combined with our world-class facilities, renowned teaching and pioneering research, you’ll develop into what we believe is 'global talent': an outward-looking, forward-thinking and globally employable citizen of the world.

93.1% of BU graduates from undergraduate study and 91% of postgraduate study graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating – Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, 2017.

You'll find careers support and help in abundance here at BU with a team of careers advisers on hand to assist you on your journey. We also run recruitment fairs and employer events to help introduce you to companies such as JP Morgan, John Lewis, Microsift, Intel and Disney, as well as weekly careers workshops. Find out more about the support of the Careers & Employability Service.

"The benefits of placements are endless. They’ll put you in such a better position compared to someone without the same experience when applying for future job roles, especially graduate positions."
