Employability and professional practice is embedded in all of Northumbria’s postgraduate courses, some of which have been developed in conjunction with the UK’s leading employers (including BAE Systems, the NHS, IBM, Shell, the BBC, and Santander).
Many postgraduate courses are accredited by professional industry bodies such as the British Psychological Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers ensuring that course content is highly relevant to the needs of the workplace. Northumbria’s Newcastle Business School was also the first in Europe to gain AACSB double accreditation in accounting and business (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
Students at Northumbria will acquire the advanced, specialist knowledge and skills required to enter the workplace at an advanced level. Students are also given real-world opportunities to put what they’ve learnt into practice, working with the university’s network of leading businesses on live project briefs.
The university’s close links with national and international employers, professional agencies, and government bodies also provides many opportunities for students to gain internships and professional placements.
In addition to course-based employability initiatives, Northumbria provides a dedicated careers and employment service – ‘Graduate Futures’, which provides support on finding jobs, writing CVs, and creating portfolios, operates a graduate jobs board, and runs careers fairs where students can meet recruiters.
