As a University of Leeds graduate your career prospects are bright. Leeds graduates are found world-wide, and many have made major contributions in their field, including two prime ministers (Mongolia and Namibia).

We will help you to make sure you are not just qualified, but a fully rounded, employable graduate. Support such as Leeds for Life will help you organise and develop skills that are important for your time here and beyond. Whether you choose to stay in the UK or return to your home country, you'll be prepared for the world after graduation and get a boost that graduates from other universities don't get.

The University Careers Centre plays a key role in ensuring the continued success of Leeds graduates as they move on to employment or further study.
