Global careers support

The University of Birmingham is a global campus that commands a strong and distinctive international reputation.

Many of our graduating students embark on global careers with multi-national employers. We encourage all of our students to take advantage of the opportunities we provide to develop their global outlook and become truly international.

Below are some useful resources to help you on your global career path.

Global Mindset

There can be some excellent benefits to obtaining work experience overseas. However, before you commit to an international opportunity, you should take time to ensure that you understand fully the opportunity for which you are applying and that you are aware of all the implications involved.

Living and working abroad

If you are planning to work overseas the key factor is to start your research early.

GoinGlobal is a resource, provided by the University, which will help you explore opportunities around the world, research the job market and find vacancies in your chosen country.

On the website you will find over 120 location specific careers guides, and advice on making culturally correct applications. You will also find information on the cultural etiquette in the workplace of your chosen country.

Other international resources

Alumni International Guides are insights and tips on finding a job and socialising in some of the most popular destinations our alumni return or move to after graduation.
