Identifying what you want to do today, tomorrow or on graduation isn’t always easy. The Your Future Plan questionnaire helps you assess where you are and where you want to go, from your first year of study to your last.
With the Your Future Plan questionnaire you can explore your options, decide your course of action and achieve your goals. Shape your personal future plan in discussion with your personal tutor and in one-to-one sessions with our knowledgeable careers consultants and work placement coordinators.
And there’s 10 years’ support after you graduate.
