As a student at Lancaster, you will have access to our excellent Careers Service. This provides a dedicated and innovative service for students and graduate employers. We offer lifetime support, help and advice to all of our students. This includes one-to-one support and advice on work experience, employability skills and careers. There are careers events throughout the academic year that many students find invaluable. The Knowledge Bank and Ask Careers function provide valuable information on where your degree may take you. You can also undertake the Lancaster Award, which rewards you for taking part in activities outside of your degree scheme. Furthermore, our on-campus recruitment agency advertises part-time work within the University, ensuring fair access to the paid work that is available.
The Department hosts an annual Chemistry Careers Networking Event, giving undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to hear from those working in a variety of science-based roles. These include roles in industry, teaching, research, experimental officers and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Each guest will give an overview of their chosen career and the path they took to get there. There is also the chance to talk informally and ask questions. We also provide an opportunity to attend a CV clinic for one-to-one advice and to attend a practice interview.
