Careers, Employability and Enterprise

Get the most from your time at university

The University of Suffolk places your future at the heart of your degree, with employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship embedded across the curriculum to ensure you become a graduate that is ready for your future, and the variety of paths it is likely to take. Over 9 out of 10 graduates are in employment and/or further study 15 months after completing their degree (HESA Graduate Outcomes Survey, 2019/20), and Ipswich (our main campus) is frequently noted as one of the best towns to start a business in.

The Careers, Employability and Enterprise Team are here to help you, University of Suffolk students, explore, develop and shape your futures. To do this, we offer a wide variety of initiatives and activities for you to get involved with from the moment you start your degree with us, and work with a wide variety of organisations and University of Suffolk graduates. We also give you access to FutureMe, your 24/7, online, career development hub from day one.
