What do we do?

We develop
professional skills
in our physics students

We lead career-focussed programmes as part of our university courses and we are working to develop skills-based curricula.

We put
students in touch with
regional and national businesses

We set up industry-sponsored undergraduate research projects and help students apply for placements and graduate roles.

We help
companies find
the right talent for their problem

We engage with companies to help them carry out innovative research and development, recruit talented graduates, and raise their profile.

Why do we do it?

Despite these strengths, regional employers often struggle to find high-calibre graduates to support the innovation and growth of their businesses.  There are two main causes:

Uninformed graduates

When surveyed, over 80% of our students stated that they were unaware of graduate-level roles in their local region. More generally, physics students are unaware of the sectors in which they can use their degree, and fewer than a third of graduates find work in a physics-based industry.
