Why take an Employability Unit?

Almost half of employers believe that graduates are leaving university without the necessary skills to ‘hit the ground running’.

Employers seek excellent academic qualifications but they also want you to have a wide range of other skills. By completing an employability unit, you will be putting yourself ahead of the competition. Gain some key skills that you will need in your chosen profession and earn extra credits in the process.

Registration
