Good news

Gradsouthwest is where UWE advertise all their graduate vacancies. Between the 1st November 2009 and the 30th April 2010, the number of South West business vacancies advertised (1,723) increase by 65% compared to last year.

2010 UWE finalists can now apply for our Graduate Internship Scheme. The results have been extremely positive so far…read what our Graduates had to say:

“it has helped me so much in the current climate and I have learnt so much and feel more confident in my abilities. It has meant that I have been able to gain valuable experience in the job I want to do, which without the funding I doubt I would have been able to get”

“I've finally got a job related to my degree thanks to the internship programme! Good work!”

“Overall the internship has really stretched me and I now feel confident in using new programmes which will hold me in good stead as I move forward in my career. However, first off I have been offered a three month extension to the internship and look forward to continuing my work”
