Discover – What can I do with my degree?

History graduates have a variety of careers available to them. Some of our graduates have gone on to work in teaching, academic research, museums, journalism, business management, civil service or politics. Remember, you can also explore careers that don’t directly relate to your degree. Did you know that over 80% of graduate employers will recruit from any degree discipline?

Develop – Developing skills and experience

If you already have some career ideas, the next step will be to develop your skills and gain some experience to build your confidence and increase your knowledge. You may want to consider volunteering, part-time work or undertaking a placement to increase your chances of gaining graduate employment after completing your degree. It’s also a great way to try-out career paths to see what you enjoy and if it’s a good fit for you.
