Your career

A postgraduate qualification is a significant professional step — either as a means of progression in your current field, or as the gateway to a change of career. At NTU, we’ll help you to maximise your competitive advantage, giving you the bespoke, targeted support to excel in your profession of choice.

Professional networks

We know that professional experience improves your chances of landing your postgraduate-level job. That’s why 100% of our courses offer a work experience element which can range from in-course projects with industry-leading names to placement opportunities.

We will introduce you to many employers during your time with us through events such as postgraduate recruitment fairs, guest lectures and our own extra-curricular initiatives. Our School and Employability teams will provide you with dedicated, sector-specific support. Specialist consultants and industry experts will support you on your postgraduate journey, helping you to plan and refine your progress with individual appointments and career-specific advice.
