University of London goes 'above and beyond' in enhancing student employability.

The University of London is amongst the top five shortlisted entries from a field of 400 submissions, in the ‘Most Improved Commitment to Employability’ category for the NUE Awards 2019.

This award celebrates the contributions made by universities who have gone above and beyond to help a small cohort of students, (under 500) apply and maximise their work experience opportunities.

As the only awards ceremony of its kind in the UK, the NUE Awards, created and hosted by RMP Enterprise, benchmark success and define excellence within the undergraduate market, offering the opportunity to reflect on and appreciate the efforts of those making positive contributions to the undergraduate industry.

The University of London recognises that the employability of its global student community is of primary importance, and so it works closely with The Careers Group, University of London, in offering current, innovative resources and services. 

Joanne Harris, Associate Director of Student Experience, said:

We are pleased that our proactive approach to providing valuable careers advice and work-based opportunities is being recognised through the NUE Awards. It is an honour to be one of five UK universities shortlisted in the ‘Most Improved Commitment to Employability’ category, on the 10th anniversary of these Awards. We understand the significance of providing graduates with the best future career outcomes. We are therefore committed and driven to continuous improvement and expansion of our employability offer. We very much look forward to attending the NUE Awards ceremony, to celebrate the best in undergraduate employability.

Laura Brammar, Senior Careers Consultant at The Careers Group, said:

By producing fresh online careers and employability resources for our students around the world, the University of London is demonstrating that it is committed to improving the employability of their students, where ever they may be based internationally.
