Career support after you graduate


As a De Montfort University student you remain part of the DMU family for ever. We continue to provide career development activities and support to all our graduates as part of our flagship programme, DMUforlife. Opportunities are available to you including paid internships, network events, recruitment fairs, access to online resources, expert 1-1 and group guidance sessions. 

The careers team are always ready to help - this was especially important to me, as the labour market is so competitive. They helped me form my CV, which led to job interviews, which then led to a graduate job. They were 100 per cent there throughout the whole journey." Izabela Valjaskova, DMU Graduate

A fast-paced professional world requires graduates to be agile and flexible and we are here to support you at key moments in your career. In the UK the majority of graduate jobs do not require a specific degree, which means many doors are open to you and a focus on continuous skill development is essential throughout your professional life. 

We regularly welcome our graduates back on to campus to attend our network events, allowing our current students to draw on the experience of DMU graduates who now work in industry. Events like these are hugely popular with students and graduates alike, providing the opportunity to support the next generation of DMU graduates take their first steps in to the professional word.

"It was a pleasure to attend the BAL Network Event. I have had lots of questions from students following the event, which is great for both," he said. "I'm glad I can give something back." Myles Bennett, DMU Law Graduate, Wright Hassall LLP
