Students and graduates across Queen Mary start new business and social ventures each year. Some make money, others make a positive social impact and many do both. In all cases, these projects help you to design your own work experience that demonstrates the enterprise skills sought by employers. The team provides support for students and recent graduates through funding, one-to-one advice at any stage of developing your business, workshops, workspace, access to experts and entrepreneurial networks.
The careers team invites employers to lead skills-based workshops, take part in panel discussions and present their own opportunities to our students throughout the year. This includes an annual Science and Technology Careers Fair exhibiting internships, graduate schemes and live vacancies from over 20 employers in Science and Technology.
