At Cardinal Newman College, we have a dedicated careers team, offering Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) to all of our students.
Higher Education students are supported by the fully qualified and informed careers staff, as well as teaching staff who have industry experience within their specialist field. Students also have access to a variety of support and resources to assist with their progression after completing their University Course at Cardinal Newman.
All students are given a careers progression tutorial, which provides information relating to degree top-up options, as well as employment opportunities post-completion.
Students can also receive one-to-one support sessions, offering information, advice and guidance from a member of the careers team, as well as employability support and support with filling in application forms, CVs and preparation for interviews. The Careers team can also provide support and advice relating to Student Finance, helping to ensure students have access to the relevant funding and loans available to them.

Student Unions allow students the opportunity to form an allegiance with fellow students to represent the interests of the Student Body as a whole.
The remit of each Student Union varies between institutions, but generally, their purpose is to represent students both within College and a national level.
