There are a wide variety of jobs and opportunities available to students after graduation. Some types of employment have more formal training schemes and others can only be found through effective networking or building experience with volunteering or short term placements.

The links below allow you to explore different types of graduate employment, how you might spend a gap year and how the Careers Service can continue to support you once you have graduated.

Don't forget, as a recent graduate of the University of Aberdeen (within the last 2 years), you can also apply for the Santander Internship scheme. We offer paid 3 month internships, with companies from many sectors, for graduates from many disciplines, on a local and national basis. If you are considering undertaking a graduate internship in Europe you may be able to apply for funding from the Erasmus+ programme.
