Personal Advice

Guidance appointments give you the opportunity to discuss your particular set of circumstances with a careers consultant. You may need practical help with an application form or more general help in order to clarify the direction you want your career to take. All discussions are confidential and can be useful both to those who wish to remain within academia and those who want to move into other employment areas. All appointments are with a specialist careers consultant for doctoral researchers  and early career researchers.
