Who can I discuss my career or further study plans with?
Careers Network can provide Careers Advice & Guidance appointments to discuss your next careers steps, including any plans for further study or other options. Current students can book appointments themselves using their my.bham username and password. If all appointments are currently booked, please note that new appointments tend to be released at 18:00 or due to cancellations. If you are having difficulty logging in to Careers Connect, please see our troubleshooting guide. We also offer specific advice on preparing CVs and application forms and practice interviews.
Graduates, alumni, and other course leavers are all eligible for assistance for up to two years after leaving the University. However, for technical reasons, they cannot directly book appointments through Careers Connect – if you fall into one of these categories, please contact us below. We can potentially arrange appointments by Skype or phone for students outside Birmingham in some cases. Please let us know:
- Whether you can attend face-to-face appointments on our main (Edgbaston) campus, or require a phone/Skype appointment
- Whether there are any times/days you are generally unavailable (eg due to work or study)
- Whether there are any accessibility requirements we need to bear in mind – eg unfortunately not all of our appointment venues are accessible by wheelchair, but we can make alternative arrangements where necessary
