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.

Student Circus is a resource, provided by the University, which will help you explore opportunities in 30+ countries that value the global experience of returning students. On the website you will find customised guides, tools and information to boost your career.

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.
