Wellbeing Wednesday – The Careers Service

Spotlight on…The Careers Service

We know that many students will be thinking about what to do after Semester 2, whether that is finding work experience over the summer, looking for placement roles, or preparing for a graduate position. Whatever your situation, the university’s Careers Service can help. They have a range of services, from helping you learn about sectors, to connecting you with employers, and individual support with applications.



This is the main portal for booking appointments and registering for events. There are still lots of opportunities to engage with the service and meet potential employers. Make sure to check the events calendar regularly for upcoming events that could help you.



Want to work for yourself? Whatever stage you’re at with business, freelance or portfolio career goals, our START UP team can help. Whether you want to explore ideas, establish an innovative new service or use your skills and specialisms to create your own opportunities, we’ll support you at every stage, from pre-idea to launch and beyond. START UP offers bespoke one-to-one coaching, socials, workshops, peer-learning groups, equity-free funding, a pre-accelerator initiative, co-working space and more.

This is an exclusive network for Newcastle University students to connect with potential mentors. Mentors include Newcastle University graduates and other professionals working in a range of sectors who have volunteered to provide you with support and advice. By connecting with alumni you can:

  • connect with a mentor
  • build and develop a professional network
  • receive careers advice from alumni around the world
  • gain insight into a particular industry or career
  • increase your self-awareness and understand the skills and qualities you can offer future employers


Virtual Opportunities

COVID 19 has changed the way many people work and in response, the Careers Service has pulled together a range of information to help you prepare for this new virtual world, from online courses to virtual volunteering and internships.


Career Insight Bursary

This bursary provides financial support to help you explore your career options and to apply for opportunities. It aims to help you gain experience and develop graduate skills, by providing funding for unpaid opportunities. The bursary can also cover travel costs for an interview if the employer is unable to provide funding



Please remember that if you are successful in securing a placement role it needs to be approved by the Business School. If you need to let us know that you have found a role then please email us at nubs.placementandstudyabroad@newcastle.ac.uk and we will give you a short form to complete.
