The School is dedicated to supporting the career and personal development of its students and graduates.  Students are provided with guidance and support in their career development from the SAS Careers Service, who are part of The Careers Group, University of London.

The SAS Careers Service works with students and graduates of all ages and at all stages of career development across all the institutes. They help students with their career development, either within their current field of work or in something completely new.

SAS students can access 1-2-1 appointment with the SAS Careers Consultant. One-to-one careers guidance can help you plan your next steps and give you support and advice to achieve your career goals, whatever they might be.  You can also book a practice interview with the SAS Careers Consultant who will help you improve your interview technique and give you feedback.  All careers sessions can be offered face-to-face, via email or phone.  To book a 1-2-1 session please email the careers team at sascareers@careers.lon.ac.uk

Each year we run a number of career-focused events for SAS students. These include workshops with topics including ‘Writing a Successful PhD application’ and ‘Getting a Post-doc’ as well as Careers Cafes, which bring together groups of students from across the SAS institutes to have informal discussions about career related topics. 

Workshops and Careers Cafes will be advertised via email in the preceding weeks.

If you would like more information or to book a place on any of these workshops, please email us at sas.registry@sas.ac.uk
