Lecturers in casual meeting


We work closely with university careers and student services and provide them with all the tools they need to prepare students for employability, in terms of both careers multimedia and database services and solutions.

With 77% of students already making career choices by the end of Year 11*, we realise that it is becoming increasingly important to raise awareness of your profile as soon as possible. This is why we have a whole range of products and services allowing you to engage with school leavers seeking career advice and options.

What’s more, for students wishing to undertake postgraduate studies, we also offer a comprehensive range of media that can help promote your postgraduate courses, as well as any relevant postgraduate funding schemes.
