Teaching and Research
Successfully transitioning into a post-degree career requires a combination of self-reflection and job market awareness, as well the proactive development of strategic career planning and employment preparation skills. ASPIRE offers workshops and events in each of these areas, with the ultimate aim of supporting students' progression into meaningful professions.
