Careers, Employability and Enterprise - enhanced support and resources


The University of Suffolk is a diverse and vibrant community and is committed to providing equality of opportunity for all. In the Careers, Employability and Enterprise Team we strive to promote inclusivity and to support students from all walks of life to develop their employability, explore their future plans and make a successful transition to their chosen post-graduate destination.

We know that students from underrepresented groups can face barriers in accessing the graduate labour market. These pages highlight the range of our offer as well as some useful resources to help navigate the transition process.

For more information on the wider context and how the University of Suffolk works to increase participation of students normally under-represented in Higher Education, as well as supporting our students to succeed on their course and progress into employment and further study, you can read our full Access and Participation Plan

What is meant by underrepresented groups?

Based on information and definitions from Office for Students, this includes (but is not limited to) students and graduates in one or more of the following categories:

  • students with disabilities
  • students who identify as Black, Asian, Mixed and/or from a Global Majority racial and ethnic group 
  • students who are first in their family to go to university or come from an area of low participation in Higher Education
  • students from areas of low household income
  • care experienced students
  • mature students (under 21 when they started their first undergraduate degree).

Have a look at the sections below and explore how you could benefit from our enhanced support as well as some useful external resources. You can also contact if you have any questions.
