Career Support

Boost your Employability with our Career Support

Our graduates are professionally equipped with the skills, knowledge and experience to satisfy a range of career pathways. According to the Good Universities Guide 2019, UNSW Sydney sits among the top 20% of institutions, scoring the maximum five-star rating for the following areas: 

  1. Getting a job
  2. Student retention
  3. Student demand
  4. Student/teacher ratio
  5. Staff qualification

UNSW recognises that a great degree is only part of landing that dream job. The other elements to career success sit outside theory and beyond the classroom, which is why we provide a number of career services to support your journey.

Throughout your studies, we offer a range of career support services that will help you understand your options, how to plan for life after your studies and how to develop practical skills.

Career Planning

Deciding on a career path is one of the most important decisions you can make. We know it can be a stressful time, which is why we offer career planning information packs as well as specific advice for PhD candidates.

If you have specific questions, you can book a career advice appointment with one of our advisors. We’ll take you through everything from cover letters to selection criteria.
