Careers and Employability

It's our job to help you get ready for your future – we provide a wealth of support, advice and guidance to help your career take off in the right direction

AUB Creative Futures Fest

The Creative Futures Fest is a week of events with themed days that aim to inform and inspire students and graduates about a range of career areas and opportunities.

Many recruiters look beyond your degree title and are interested in the transferable skills you are gaining on your degree. This means that the range of careers you could go into is vast! Explore the range of speakers on offer and book on to get your zoom link. Be inspired!

We are in the process of fine tuning the details but look out for updates.

To sign up to events go to Creative Futures Fest.
