University of Derby Careers

Work placements look great on your CV and many of our students have gone on to secure a role with their placements after graduating.

Be your own boss

If your ambition is to own your own business, either while you’re studying or after you’ve graduated we can offer you one of our incubation units, with reasonable rent and a range of business support services to help you on your way to establishing your business.

We also run competitions every year, such as Business Quest, to help you develop your business and enterprise skills.

Our three year promise

Once your hard work has paid off and you have gained your degree we continue to support you in securing the job you want. For up to three years after you graduate our Careers and Employment Service will support and guide you with one to one appointments with employment advisors, career planning, CV tailoring and preparing for interviews.

You also have the opportunity to take a postgraduate Career Management and Employability module. This 10 week online course will offer you the chance to enhance your employability prospects and offer you an insight into postgraduate level learning.
