Careers in Science

Growth in jobs in science, research, engineering and technology is expected to double the rate of other occupations between now and 2023. When UK STEM graduates can also earn nearly 20% more than their peers, this is a fantastic time to pursue a career in science and engineering. Find out more about the opportunities to study degree-level science on your doorstep and the variety of careers open to science graduates.

The session will be delivered by a leading member of academic staff and has been designed for anyone who has an interest in pursuing a career in science.
