Career planning

Not sure what to do?

If you are not sure about what you want to do when you leave university, don't worry, you are not alone! Whether you have plenty of ideas about your future plans but don't know how to narrow these down, or you feel that you lack inspiration and need to generate some ideas, we are here to help.

Don’t worry about what you will be doing in 10 years, just focus now on your first steps. There is no ‘right’ way to decide what to do, so don’t feel that everything has to be planned in detail. Trying to do something positive to get experience or try something out is better than waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
