Amazing careers start here

Every course here at Hertfordshire is designed to help you blaze a trail in your chosen career. Created with direct input from innovative employers, informed by groundbreaking research and backed up with incredible careers support, these really are degrees with a difference.

All the right connections

Our vision is to be internationally renowned as the UK’s business-leading University. That means we work with big blue-chip companies, public sector organisations, professional bodies and entrepreneurial smaller enterprises to open up all kinds of exciting employment opportunities for you.

These organisations help shape our courses, offer valuable work placements and give regular talks to share first-hand industry insights. Their input means you’ll pick up exactly the skills today’s companies need. No wonder they take on so many of our graduates after studying’s done.

Placements that put you ahead

We have a fantastic reputation with both employers and students for our placement opportunities, which range from vacation work to game-changing, full-year placements. Every year hundreds of students take huge strides forward

in their career by getting involved – many even land their first graduate job based on their placement’s success.

Outstanding careers support

CareerHub is our world-class careers portal, updated daily to give you 24/7 access to expert careers support, online resources and the latest graduate, placement and work experience jobs.

It’s run by our Careers, Employment and Enterprise Service, a friendly, expert team on hand to give you all the career and recruitment support you need. They also run a packed schedule of events, workshops and fairs, honing your skills and putting you face-to-face with great employers.

Nurturing new entrepreneurs

There’s a real entrepreneurial spirit here at Hertfordshire and the skills you’ll learn can also help you get a brand new business off the ground. We have dedicated enterprise advisers who can give you plenty of great advice, whether you want to work as a freelancer, start your own company, or set up a social enterprise or not-for-profit venture.

We also run inspirational speaker events, an annual competition for budding entrepreneurs and a business start-up programme to help you fast-track your ideas with the support of mentors. You can even grow your business alongside your studies by basing yourself in our Incubation Centre.

Here for you, long after you leave

Those first years after university can really define your future, so our Careers, Employment and Enterprise team

offer you support for two years after you graduate, or three years if you’re starting up a business.

You’ll also automatically become a member of our Alumni Association, giving you great opportunities to network, get

to know other graduates working in your field and hear about new career opportunities.
