Employability is at the heart of everything we do, and is the focus of Grad Edge, our programme of activities and events which get our students thinking about how to initiate successful graduate careers.

For more information about how your organisation can get involved in the Grad Edge calendar of employability events, see the Events section in the left hand menu.

As part of this employability initiative, we have created the Grad Edge Award, built around proactive development of the graduate-level skills identified as vital by a range of key employers, and completion of practical career-related work experience.

We anticipate that these activities will significantly enhance our students’ and graduates’ employability and help them stand out from the job-hunting crowd.
If you have a work experience opportunity you would like to offer Grad Edge students, please refer to the Placements, Internships and Work Experience section in the left hand menu.

Watch the video for more information about the Grad Edge Award and why employers think it will help our students and graduates stand out from the job-hunting crowd.

If you have worked with a Grad Edge Award student, would you like to submit an employer endorsement of the Award?
