Employability is central to every programme at Edge Hill. All vocational courses have access to industry-standard facilities to simulate a real-world environment. Guest lecturers and speakers from the worlds of media, sport, business, and health regularly visit campus, offering students the chance to ask questions and learn first-hand from industry-experts.
The Careers team is dedicated to preparing students for life after university. Students can benefit from employability skills workshops, interview and alumni advice, work experience, placement opportunities, and careers fairs held throughout the year – fantastic for networking with prospective employers and developing future contacts.
That’s why Edge Hill is in the UK top 10 for job prospects (WUSCA, 2020), with 97.2% of taught Master’s graduates and 96.3% of PGCE graduates in work or further study within 15 months (Graduate Outcomes, 2018).
Edge Hill University Students on Postgraduate Search say:
“Edge hill has amazing facilities for helping to increase your employability. In the Catalyst (library) you can book to see someone who can help you write a graduate CV, or look for jobs in your field, or help you look for work experience. This is a really helpful tool to make sure you are ready for interviews and the workplace. While Edge Hill itself also employs a handful of new graduates every year to work at the university.”
“We have job fairs regularly, and the careers team email, send letters, etc. to ask how your employment is going. They are really on top of it all.”
“I feel Edge Hill promote employability from the get-go. They have dedicated teams and skills workshops which run throughout the year in addition to careers fairs.”
