Frequently asked questions

Business & Management

Business management offers an exciting career path for commercially-alert graduates who want to experience every part of a business from day one. With such roles being available in virtually all companies and sectors, this offers you a great amount of flexibility to choose a company or industry that really interests you.


A popular career path for graduates of all degree disciplines (that’s right, you don’t have to study Law at undergraduate level!), the legal sector is a dynamic and challenging environment for ambitious graduates. We’ll be joined by some of the world’s leading commercial law firms, including Clyde & Co, Burges Salmon LLP, Reed Smith and many more.

Further Education

Are you wondering how you can set yourself apart from other applicants on your graduate scheme applications? A Masters degree from a top business school could be the answer. 

A business-focused Masters will give you a comprehensive overview of all areas of a business including finance, data analytics, strategy and more - this is particularly valuable for those coming from STEM or Arts & Humanities backgrounds looking to break into the corporate world.
