Recent graduates have found a wide range of employment usually typified by education, health and social work careers, but also within broader careers with wholesale and retail sectors, banking and accountancy, journalism and media, recruitment and personnel, amongst others.
At Bristol you have the opportunity to plan much of your degree programme. A modular course structure permits a good deal of flexibility. Your choice of programme may lead towards certain careers; but sensibly many students do not choose possible careers until they have sampled the range of subjects
