Be work ready

Your career doesn’t start in three or four years’ time. It starts now. A degree from UWE Bristol means more than just a qualification. It means practical, real-world experience to complement your education and everything you’ll learn.

Everything we do is focused on making sure you’re well positioned for the future and as a result 78% of UWE Bristol graduates are in professional or managerial roles within six months of graduating. This is 6% higher than the market (71%).

Ready for the real world

Many of our courses are designed in partnership with employers so that you can be confident that your qualification will be relevant in a competitive jobs market. You’ll directly benefit from the strong partnerships, connections and networks we’ve built up with over 1,000 national and international employers. Names you know such as GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Sony, L’Oréal and Airbus.

And it’s not just about what you learn in the classroom. Our relationship with employers means work experience. Placements, internships, live projects, and simulations will give you the experience you need.

We’ve arranged over 3,000 internships since 2010 and 9,211 students undertook a placement in 2016/17

You'll also get the opportunity to develop invaluable industry contacts, showcase your work at Degree Shows and develop that all-important entrepreneurial mind-set. Our annual Meet the Employers Fair, launched in 2009, is now one of the largest graduate recruitment fairs in the UK with 174 exhibitors in 2017 ranging from global brands to local SMEs.

All set for success

Our award winning careers service will help you get your CV up to scratch, hone those all-important interview skills and boost your confidence ready for the next step.  With 95% of our graduates in work or further study six months after graduating, your future is secure. 

When you leave us, you leave as a well-rounded, highly-employable graduate.  Someone who’s work-ready, equipped with the ability and agility to tackle new challenges and make a difference. Instead of showing employers what you can do, you’ll be able to show them what you’ve done.  Future work ready? You will be.
