Extra careers support for BAME students

At the Careers Service we know BAME students can face additional challenges to career thinking. This may include facing discrimination in recruitment practices, exploring career ideas when you don’t know what’s out there, or getting quality work experience with less developed networks.

To help level the playing field, we’ve compiled the best support and opportunities into one handy document over on mycareer.

We also send out live opportunities in our weekly Flying Start bulletin. Sign up to Flying Start now!
