You’ll have access to specialised careers resources from day one of your degree at Queen Mary.
The School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences has a dedicated careers consultant, who is on hand to offer specialist advice and organise subject-specific events. We also have a dedicated internships coordinator, who can support you in finding a position which is a good fit for you and your studies.
Once you’re enrolled as a student, you can always drop into the Queen Mary Careers Service for a chat – whether you have a specific query or just want to talk through your options.
The Careers Service offers specialist advice on choosing a career path, support with finding work experience and graduate jobs, feedback on CVs, cover letters and application forms, and interview coaching.
You’ll also have access to a programme of events aimed at connecting you with potential employers. Representatives from high-profile companies and organisations are invited to lead skills-based workshops, take part in panel discussions and present their own opportunities to students throughout the year.
Among these events is the annual Science and Technology Careers Fair, exhibiting internships, graduate schemes and live vacancies from over 20 employers in the science and technology sectors. It’s a great opportunity to network with respected professionals while learning more about the career paths available to you.
If you’re keen to gain extra work experience, Queen Mary’s employment agency, QTemps, can help you find temporary jobs on campus – including specialist part-time clinical and healthcare work.
You can also get involved with the range of initiatives run by the Careers and Enterprise team, including taster schemes with employers, consultancy projects with local organisations, and internships.
