Career development

The School is dedicated to supporting the career and personal development of its students and graduates.

Students are provided with guidance and support in their career development from the Careers Service of the University of London.

Graduates have gone on to work in a range of successful careers in many different countries. Some continue to further study at PhD level and many of these will go on to become researchers and academics, while others work in national and local government, the media, non-governmental organisations, law firms, financial institutions, publishing houses, inter-governmental agencies, the heritage and culture industry and many more.
