The Career and Personal Development Team is proud to offer lifetime support to Staffordshire University graduates. Given the Covid-19 pandemic, we appreciate and understand that the Class of 2020 will be graduating into what is tough and uncertain labour market, the toughest since 2008.
This page has been created to show and highlight all of the different support available to the Graduating Class of 2020.
For those of you who chose to take part, GradEX is now live to employers. We’ve had nearly 500 students submit their final year projects and dissertations, which is fantastic and even more than last year!
The GradEX portal is now live and is being shared with over 7000 of our extensive contacts and alumni partners - that’s more industry experts, recruiters and hirers than ever before.
The portal will remain available to employers across the summer months, so they can contact, connect and network with you – so remember to check your emails.
