Graduates throwing caps in the airBeing able to use our services doesn’t stop when you graduate from Aber. Whenever you graduated, we are still here to help with any careers-related needs you may have, at any time.

Services available to all Aber graduates

Additional services for recent Aber graduates

All Aber graduates - from any graduation year

As an Aber graduate, you’ll have lifelong access to the services that were available to you when you were a student, in person or online.

These services include access to our online portal, ABERcareers, where you will still be able to send us queries, search for placements, graduate schemes and other vacancies, explore careers workshops and employer events, and book an appointment with a Careers Consultant.

To be able to make full use of these services after finishing your studies, you will first need to update your student profile on ABERcareers to a graduate profile.

You can of course still contact us direct by email,, or by phone, 01970 622378. Or, if you are in the area, call in to see us on the Penglais campus in our dedicated space in the Hugh Owen Library.

Whether you need to access our services or not, please do stay in touch, or follow us and share your updates with us on LinkedIn – we love to hear how our alumni are getting on.

Recent Aber graduates

As well as the services available to all graduates from any course or year, we also offer additional support to recent graduates of BA, BSc, Integrated Masters (or equivalent) courses at Aber, who are either working but not in graduate-level employment, or who are currently unemployed. These are:

1. ABERforward

ABERforward provides graduate entry-level paid work experience to support eligible Aber students and graduates who feel they don’t yet have the skills or work-readiness to successfully move into a graduate career; this may be due to, for example, limited work experience to date, feeling unsure about career interests, or low confidence.

Placements are in University departments and usually take place between September and July each academic year, full-time or part-time. A full-time 'block' placement scheme is also offered to graduates only, whether living locally or returning to Aber to undertake the placement. This scheme is ideal if you have not yet secured graduate employment since your studies ended and would like to boost your CV, share experiences and build your skills and confidence as part of a group programme with other graduates.

Visit the ABERforward webpage to find out more.

2. Graduate Support

Our Advisers are available to provide careers support, information and guidance designed to help recent graduates move forward confidently into graduate employment. To find out more about this dedicated support, please email
