Graduate employability

Your son or daughter’s future is important to us and we know that you will be thinking a lot about their post-university careers. That’s why every single one of our undergraduate courses at Loughborough includes a paid placement year option, so that students can focus on maximising their employment prospects and start building important relationships within business and industry.

The placement year option allows students to gain invaluable experience that will shape them into highly employable graduates. In addition to this, many placements lead to job offers and can have a positive impact on academic performance. We work with globally recognised businesses as well as independent companies to develop our courses and provide our students with support to find placement opportunities. These can be businesses based both in the UK and abroad.

In addition to this we host several careers fairs on campus providing students with a chance to meet over 300 employers who could possibly enhance their future careers. Our Autumn Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair is one of the largest university careers fairs in the UK. Our Careers Network office offers excellent support to students to help with their career planning and application writing.
