Help our students’ graduate prospects with these employability toolkits

Portsmouth was recently ranked among the top 20 universities and the best in the South East for graduate prospects in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.

Vice-Chancellor Graham Galbraith said: “It’s important that we provide the best possible support for our students in developing their employability and improving their graduate prospects after they have left the University to ensure they are successful in their careers. Our position in the top 20 for graduate outcomes reflects our commitment to this and we must continue to make sure our courses and our staff can provide this support.”
