Your future career

Your future career

Get ready for the world of work from day one.

At Royal Holloway we’re all about making sure you leave university with more than just a degree, with the skills you need to stand out to employers and succeed in your future career.

We’ll be by your side from day one, and up to two years after you graduate, helping you identify and build up the skills that employers are looking for. Everything you do here, from your academic work to activities outside your studies, such as getting involved with our volunteering or even starting up your own business, can help enhance your skillset and build your confidence.

You’ll be encouraged to prepare for your future career, with guidance from your academic department perfectly complemented by our expert Career Services team. Together they’ll give you practical support on writing applications, preparing for interviews, finding placements and part-time jobs, along with the chance to network with employers and former students who’ve gone on to great things.

You can find plenty of examples of careers our alumni have gone into by looking at our individual academic department webpages in the Department and Schools section.
