Careers and Enterprise

Support for International Students

There are a number of ways in which Careers and Enterprise can support you as an international student. Click on the different sections below to find out more about how we can help you.

We have a range of appointment types for you to take advantage of. You can find out more about these on our Events page or Book an Appointment page. 

Career Guidance 

Current Students

Guidance sessions can be booked by current students through the Events section on Careers Hub - these small group sessions are led by the International Careers Consultant and run regularly. You should try to book before attending and arrive on time to avoid disappointment.

Please ensure you have attended or watched recordings of our previous informative webinars to gain the base knowledge before attending any drop-in, group-guidance or appointment with the Careers and Enterprise team, so we can focus on your bespoke questions.


International Careers Guidance 1:1 Appointments: if you have graduated from Queen Mary within the last 3 years, you can book a guidance appointment online or in-person under this specific appointment type here.

Application Advice - Have an application checked by a careers consultant before submitting it. (Learning and Development can help with correcting spelling and grammar on CVs or application forms, as we don't have time to cover this in one-to-one careers appointments)
