Careers Service

Careers Services for SAS Students

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.  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

Each year we run a number of career-focused events for School students. Some workshops are geared towards all students, and some are specifically focused on research (PGR), or taught (PGT) students. The workshops cover a number of areas and are designed to provide you with the information and support you need.

These workshops cover topics such as:

  •  ‘What next after your PhD/Masters’
  • Applying for a PhD
  • Academic interviews
  • and CVs for postdocs

Workshops 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
