Economics Career Skills Certificate

Employers are interested in the skills you develop through student life as well as the academic knowledge you gain through your studies. The Economics Department, in partnership with the Careers Service, provides opportunities to develop transferable skills to enable you to market yourself effectively for graduate jobs.

What is the Economics Career Skills Certificate Course?

The Economics Careers Skills Certificate course programme has been developed by the Department of Economics jointly with the Careers & Employability Service. It is designed to enhance your employability skills by helping you understand how to:

  • build an attractive CV during your studies
  • secure and succeed in work experience and internships
  • make successful applications
  • perform well on interviews
  • find a graduate job or further study programme that is right for you

This course is delivered in each year of your degree helping you build upon the skills you develop. Each year that is successfully completed will be awarded with the respective year award and Passpoint Points to go toward the Royal Holloway Passport Award Scheme (an initiative to recognise student achievement beyond the classroom)

*In order to receive the ‘Gold’ and/or ‘Platinum’ Award plus the allocated Passport Points you must have completed the previous year(s) Award (‘Silver’ and/or ‘Gold’) 

If you complete only one year e.g only the ‘Gold’ award in your second year or ‘Platinum’ award in your third year, then you will only receive Passport Points (no certificate will be awarded)
