Career planning for postgraduate taught students

As a busy student with many competing demands on your time, it can be easy to put off planning your next career move.

However, having clearly identified goals for the future can help you to maintain your focus and motivation. Start your planning at an early stage of your postgraduate taught year. It's never too early to begin exploring options and thinking about your next steps.
