Employability for all

Whether you’re deciding on your future, planning to get more experience, or in the midst of competing for a job, the University of Exeter’s award-winning Career Zone is here to support you.

Careers Guidance

The Business School has a dedicated team of Employability and Careers Consultants, who will work with you from day one to help develop your skills for employment. Book a 1 to 1 appointment here or check Handshake for upcoming sessions.


We also offer a comprehensive range of skills training sessions on a wide variety of employability topics. Many sessions count towards The Exeter Award - an achievement award unique to the University of Exeter that gives you recognition for the activities that you take part in outside of your studies and helps to develop a range of skills to take forward into the world of work.


YES! - Your Employability Skills is an online course (on ELE) that provides 24/7 careers management skills when you need them, where you need them. Topics include using social media to e-brand yourself for employers, psychometric testing, and professional ethics. Units are standalone, and most carry credits towards the Exeter Award.
