Leeds Metropolitan offers a wide range of opportunities for you to develop your employability through extracurricular activities and development on your course.
Our University’s community, cultural and international partnerships offer amazing volunteering opportunities from working behind the scenes at Leeds Festival to teaching English in Thailand.
Our Students' Union also offers opportunities to get involved in the local community and enhance your CV at the same time. Projects include working with older people, children and recycling in the community.
A work placement is a great way to add another dimension to your CV, develop new skills and learn more about your chosen career. Many courses at Leeds Metropolitan offer a work placement within the curriculum and your course team will offer information and support to help you find and make the most of your placement opportunity.
If your course does not include a work placement then you can organise one for yourself. You should contact the Jobs & Careers team to explore your options. Your course team may also be able to offer some guidance.
Taking a postgraduate or short course can help boost your prospects. Find out more.
