Subject Specific Information

There are a great many possibilities open to graduates, probably more than you realise at first. Sometimes, the hardest task facing finalists and new graduates is deciding how to choose from the many options available to you. There are jobs which are directly related to degree disciplines, jobs where particular subjects may be useful and also a whole range of jobs open to graduates of any discipline.

Our departmental pages include information and links specific to your subject. You may also wish to explore other possibilities not directly related to your degree subject. Prospects Planner, available on the Prospects website, can help you to identify and prioritise your skills, interests and motivations before suggesting a number of possible career areas based on those preferences, which may or may not be related to your degree.

The TARGETjobs website also has a section on career options with different degrees, which is worth a look.

It can be helpful in deciding on a future career to see what other students have done after graduation. Information on what graduates are doing six months after graduation is collected nationally and you can find an overview of these statistics in the HECSU/AGCAS publication What do graduates do. You can also have a look at what Aber graduates do, in each of the subject pages (see links below and on left-hand side). Find out what Aberystwyth graduates say about the university, the courses(s) they studies and what they're doing now by reading our Graduate Profiles.
