Careers

Preparing you for your future career is important to us. Our degree programmes equip you with the skills and knowledge that make you highly sought after by future employers.

Our degree programmes have employability skills embedded into the curriculum. We work with industry to make sure your learning is relevant and reflects the skills required in the workplace. It’s not just about lectures and practicals, our links with local and global organisations allow us to provide both salaried and voluntary internships. You get to apply the knowledge and skills you’ve learnt, and make a real difference. This is an invaluable experience for when you graduate and embark upon your chosen career path.

Careers

Science and technology qualifications open up a wide choice of career options. Demand for our graduates is high, with over 90% going on to employment or further study within 6 months. You will develop a wide range of practical skills that can be applied outside of your study area. These much sought after skills provide opportunities in science-based industries as well as careers in areas such as management, consultancy, marketing and education.

Careers Support

We have extensive careers support service here at Lancaster University, for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. We offer:

  • help and advice
  • further study options
  • information on travel and gap years
  • an on-campus recruitment agency

Our support for you doesn’t end when you graduate and embark on your future career path. We’re still here to help and advise you as part of our community of Alumni.
