Career Advice

The Students’ Union and University offer a range of careers services and opportunities for you to explore throughout your time at University.


University Careers Service

In addition to focusing on studies, Students need to do other things during their time at university to develop their CV & employability. The Careers Service exists to help students manage all this from day one. You don't need a draft CV, a careers idea in mind or to be in your final year to use the service. Whatever your situation, why not make that appointment and get the support you need?

Boost your CV and stand out from the crowd. Volunteering will give you valuable transferable skills to take with you into the job-hunting world, communication, teamwork, time management, organisation and decision making to name a few. We work with the University and local communities across South and West Wales to provide students with volunteering opportunities, we also help students to start their own projects.
