Student Employability

Students develop their employability during their studies through gaining expertise in a chosen field and acquiring the skills, capabilities and personal attributes that they need to excel as graduates. 

Employability development happens through our world-class teaching, industry-informed curriculum, careers education, work placements and internships, and other industry interactions, and co-curricular opportunities.
