  • You might be planning to return home to work. But if you are hoping to stay and work in the UK or in another country, you may be wondering where to start. Finding work in a new country is a daunting and difficult challenge, especially if you need a work visa. How do you go about:

    • searching for a job?
    • applying for a job?
    • going for an interview?

    All these can be very different to your experience of job hunting in your own country, but you can develop your skills and confidence while you are at Oxford Brookes.

    Careers can help to prepare for job hunting for up to three years after you graduate.
