Finding your career path

Choosing your career path is more than just selecting your program.

While at university it helps to:

  • research the best courses, major and program options for your career path
  • identify skills that you need for your career and look at ways you can get these
  • look at opportunities for work experience in your field.

For a successful and happy career you may find it useful to create a plan and consider how you can achieve your goals. Current students, past students and alumni can visit the Careers Service to discuss a career plan, but as a starting point it can be handy to explore the type of careers that are linked to your program by visiting Degrees to Careers
