End of year and life as you know it is fast approaching. You may feel like you’re still 18 and only been studying and living that uni life for approximately 2 minutes.
Life can feel difficult after graduating but fear not, we have some ideas to get you excited for your future.
You might want to search for a graduate job, study at postgrad level, or take some time out to go travelling or even volunteer.
Put your professional head on and get out and network with people within your chosen industry and prospective employers.
Make sure your online presence is managed correctly and used to benefit your working life. LinkedIn is THE place employers will look you up but be warned, they may also try and scope you out on other social media platforms. So keep them clean or extremely private at least.
– Applying For A Graduate Job
Going to your university careers office should be your first port of call. Most of them will support you following your uni departure too if you require it.
They are there to support you and give you solid career advice so utilise them.
– What If I get a 2:2?
Graduate schemes are only one of your options for work after uni so don’t worry.
Most places value work experience depending on the career you want to go in to. You could also take on post-grad study to improve your chance of employment.
– Post Graduate Study
Embarking on a post-graduation qualification can help develop your specialist, in-depth knowledge of your undergraduate study and it may increase your employability.
– What about a gap year?
You could take a gap year if you want to see more of the world, buff up on your language knowledge, meet new people or scope out new cities/countries to live in.
Do make sure you have a plan thought as a job simply won’t just fall into your lap. You will still need to put effort into the search for work.

Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
