Careers Service

Do I need to know what I want to do before using the Careers Service?

That is a really good question, but put simply the answer is 'no'!

The Careers Service exists to help people with this exact dilemma, we are here to help even if you have little or no idea of what you can do after graduation, or for those who have already developed career plans or studying as CPD. University studies are a time of growth, and career ambitions can change during your studies, too.

We are happy to point you in the right direction and help to discuss your options. Remember though, that Careers Advisers will not tell you what to do - that decision has to be yours.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

Please see our careers and employability page for self-service resources, or if you would like to start the process please contact one of our Employability Team today on 01204 903 080, or book an appointment on

We are proud at the University of Bolton to have a dedicated employability team, to support your career ambitions.

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
