The Careers Service is here to support you with career decision making during your studies and after you graduate.
We provide a professional career guidance and information service for Abertay students and graduates to help them make informed career choices. We work closely with employers and academic schools to support you by developing your skills to maximise your employability.
The Careers Service can support your career planning in a number of ways, including:
We do this through face to face individual support with our professional advisors and group workshops.
One great example of our careers support is through our annual Principal’s Award.
In collaboration with Santander Universities, Abertay is happy to offer our current students a range of paid short-term work projects with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through the Santander Employability Scheme. Opportunities are available on a flexible part-time or full-time basis, ranging from 2 to 3 weeks in duration. Ideal for when you want to fit in work experience along side your study commitments.
Once you're a student at Abertay, we support you to manage all your career planning from one single dashboard. Abertay Connect allows you to browse jobs and internship opportunities, book appointments with careers staff and sign up for our workshops.
