Your Future Career

We focus on the real-world application of critical thinking so that our graduates are prepared for the workplace.

With 93% of our graduates in full-time employment or further study within six months of graduation (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2018), our employability programmes are engineered to get our student's careers off to the best possible start.

An Economics degree has the potential to send a graduate's career soaring, and so we make it our priority to ensure that our graduates are fully prepared before entering the job market. With many doors open to Economic graduates on leaving university, we seek to discuss options and employability with our students regularly, so that they have direction, conviction and requisite knowledge when choosing a path.

The employability programmes available are designed to ensure that students have come into contact with all kinds of professionals, including some Royal Holloway alumi. Included on the agenda is a guest lecture series from many notable professionals, networking opportunities, careers workshops and more.
