Aberystwyth’s Career-Readiness Support Programme is designed with international students and recent graduates in mind. It provides one-to-one coaching and support, and bespoke work experience opportunities with industry links to small and large organisations across Wales and the rest of the UK.

CareerFest is Aber's annual event dedicated to employability and preparing for your future. This jam-packed week includes skills workshops, employer events, webinars, networking, and in-department sessions that give students the opportunity to learn, connect and prepare for the future. 

“The Careers Service offers great CV clinics and feedback on job applications, which is extremely useful to international students if they are not aware of the intricacies surrounding the job market in the UK.”
