Careers & Employability

We help our students and alumni prepare for their next steps. We work with you and guide you through the challenges of navigating your career journey to reach your potential as a creative professional.

Look at the sections below to find out how we can help our students and academic course teams.

Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey (GOS) is a national survey of everyone who has recently finished their higher education studies at any university or HE college in the UK.

What we do for students and alumni

  • Careers appointments

    We offer you one-to-one support based on individual need.

    We help you find jobs and internships, advise on all aspects of job applications and give guidance on career routes. Our aim is to make you clearer about your career path and to help you be successful whatever route you embark on.

    To book an appointment please sign up to our Careers Portal: uca.jobteaser.com (use your personal email to enable access after graduating).

    Please contact the Gateway at your UCA campus for assistance or drop an email to careers@uca.ac.uk.

  • Lectures, workshops and events

    We run sessions throughout the year to help manage all aspects of your career journey. Specialist events also bring relevant employers, agencies and professional experts to share tips, opportunities and words of wisdom. 

  • Job vacancies

    Our vacancy service caters for UCA students and our alumni with focus on the creative industries. We also have work experience opportunities and paid jobs across art, design, media and performance. You can find our latest job vacancies listed here.

  • Career resources

    On this website, we have selected specialist links and advice to help navigate your career path. Further bespoke resources are provided on the myUCA virtual learning environment under the myCareer tab and also on the JobTeaser Careers Portal (under the UCA Resources tab).

    UCA Careers & Employability maintains social media accounts on FacebookPinterest and Twitter.

    Each UCA campus Library has an easily accessible collection of books and other printed material relating to career development and employability.
