Employment and Careers

The General Board considers that preparation for any specific branch of employment is not the main objective of most educational courses provided by the University, and takes the view that the requirement to include specific employers' needs and opinions in programme specifications would distort the aims and objectives of many Cambridge courses. Preparation for employment in general is provided in the opportunities for acquisition of relevant transferable skills which are outlined at Natscitripos: Transferable skills.

The Careers Service maintains links with relevant employers and takes into account employer needs and opinions in the services which is provided for students. Details of its services can be found at The Careers Service also allocates a Careers Adviser to each College, Faculty and Department to act as a point of contact.
