Employability

Employability

​These days it’s hard to escape the word ‘employability’, but what does it really mean for you, the student? At Cardiff Met we believe it means developing the capability to manage your own career path and to make a really positive contribution to the economy and society. We work in partnership with you to instil the Cardiff Met EDGE - a series of Ethical, Digital, Global and Entrepreneurial skills to develop your confidence, resilience and experiences that will prepare you for life after university and through to employment.  To achieve that, we offer:

  • High quality courses that have strong links with industry and the professions, including options for work experience

  • Extensive opportunities for personal and career development

The Careers Service is designed to help you by offering one-to-one appointments, events in your school and inviting employers onto campus for a range of fairs, forums and presentations.

Our focus on employability and graduate opportunities has ensured that 95% of our graduates enter employment or further study within six months of graduation*.
