Graduate Information

Accessing careers advice and support

We're pleased to offer careers guidance and support to our graduates for up to three years after graduation. We also offer a careers service to graduates from other universities for up to one year after graduation.

All job vacancies, careers appointments and career focused workshops/events are managed through our online portal Abertay Connect. You'll need to register and log-in to access these resources.

For a range of easy access career resources, including information on how to find work, filling in application forms, writing CVs and postgraduate study options, visit our extranet Careers Pages.


Taking part in graduate surveys

Graduate surveys are an important tool in helping us shape the future student experience. We rely on the information YOU provide to help inform and shape what our academic and support services look like for new Abertay students.

Abertay University’s Destination of Leavers Survey

The Destination of Leavers Survey is run by our Career Service and gathers information about what you’re getting up to 6 months after graduation. We’re specifically interested in what job and sector you’re working in, and /or what further study opportunities you’ve taken on.

The information you provide will be anonymous, and will help us to inform current and future students of potential work and study opportunities after graduation. The information will also be used within internal departments for reporting purposes.

HESA’s Graduate Outcomes Survey

Be part of the bigger picture.

Graduate Outcomes is a national survey that gathers insight into the status of graduates 15 months after finishing their studies. As well as capturing general information about employment / further study status, the survey asks participants to reflect on how their education and education provider have directly contributed to where they are now.
