What career would suit me?

Throughout your time at the University of Westminster, you'll develop a wide range of skills, knowledge and experience. Some students will go on to pursue a career directly related to their degree subject, while others will opt to use their skills and experience in new areas.

It's important to bear in mind that around 60 per cent of advertised graduate vacancies are open to graduates of any discipline and so your options are not necessarily limited by the subject that you have studied.

You also don't have to make such a big decision by yourself – come and talk to one of our careers consultants, and speak with family and friends too. While your first job can be the first step of a rewarding career, many people work in a number of roles and industries throughout their career. What you decide to do now doesn't have to be forever.
