Newman University College Birmingham Jobs

One of the key features of Newman is the excellent graduate employment rate of both its teacher training and single and combined honours degrees.

Newman prides itself on providing quality education and encouraging students to reach their full potential. This could be why Newman historically has one of the best employment rates of colleges and universities in the UK. Every full-time degree at Newman contains a work placement element so that you will gain the graduate level work experience valued by employers. Many of our students find their placement a useful way of gaining a greater understanding of the industry that they are considering working in and helps prepare them for employment. This can, in turn, help them to refine their career options.

Transferable skills

Studying at Newman can help you to meet the demands of the modern job market. Employers are increasingly looking for additional transferable skills as well as having a degree from a leading university. As the number of graduates in the UK increases each year the graduate employment market is becoming ever more competitive. Suitable employment after graduation is no longer as certain as it once was and the employment rate can vary significantly between courses. As studying for a degree represents a significant investment in both time and money, you want to ensure that you do all that you can to be in the best possible position.

Designed to meet the needs of employers

The emphasis on providing skills relevant to the workplace continues in Newman’s postgraduate and foundation degree level courses. Indeed the foundation degrees are specifically designed to meet the needs of employers and can be studied whilst working. This enables students to apply the knowledge gained on their course to their current job and gain qualifications relevant to the industry. This can help them to gain a greater understanding of the industry as a whole and demonstrate development to progress their career.

Invest in your future

Gaining a degree is a definite investment in your future. Typically, graduates are exposed to many more job opportunities and can look forward to much higher average lifetime earnings. Our careers service will help you to seek part-time work opportunities whilst you are studying and provide you with help for the longer term, offering job hunting advice, knowledge and practice with interview techniques and help with up-to-date CV writing.
