Our What can I do with my degree? pages provide up-to-date Exeter specific destination information from recent graduates.  Prospects produce similar content, although this is more generic, but does cover a wider range of disciplines. Alternatively LinkedIn's alumni tool is another fantastic way to see what graduates have gone on to do, as well as their career path towards their current destination. 

Our Help with pages are a one-stop-shop for support, regardless of where the student might be on their career journey.  In a number of circumstances our students and graduates might feel that a one-to-one appointment would prove beneficial, and we are happy to accommodate these requests, although we always recommend that they do some of their own desktop research first, and our Help with pages provide a great start point. 

Tutors are in the unique position that you have non-modular contact time with our students and you are perceived as an authority figure, which hopefully means that the students will listen to your advice. There is no expectation for tutors to be an expert, but it is important that post-graduation plans are discussed within tutorials, and where there are concerns or the student would benefit from additional support, to sign post to the Career Zone.

We have two excellent resources to help students decide whether post-graduate study is the right decision for them, where to find sources of funding and what course to choose:

Please visit the Career Zone's Guidance for writing reference page for information on the type of reference request you might receive and what these should include, as well as section 21 of the Tutor Handbook.

All graduates from the University of Exeter are entitled to careers support forever, and more information can be found here.
