Your future career

We know that gaining experience while you study is vital. It’s important for your career - whatever you decide to do - and important for your studies that you have practical experience.

We know that gaining experience while you study is vital. It’s important for your career - whatever you decide to do - and important for your studies that you have practical experience.  

Our alumni have created diverse careers for themselves, in the media and elsewhere.

Employers are interested in the wider set of transferable skills you develop during your studies, as well as your academic and practical knowledge.

The department works with the Careers and Employability Service to provide opportunities to develop these skills and market yourself effectively for graduate jobs. You’ll get one-to-one advice from a careers consultant with appointments available in each term, and take advantage of a wide range of opportunities on campus, including:

  • Our part-time jobs fair, in the first few week of term, which provides students with access to local employers.
  • Skills workshops throughout the academic year.
  • A series of themed careers weeks including Creative Careers Week.

Royal Holloway's Careers Service is part of The Careers Group, University of London, the largest university careers service in Europe.
