Graduate Support and Opportunities


​We know that your career development doesn't stop at graduation, so neither does our support. The following outlines the resources available to you after you leave us.



All Cardiff Met graduates are entitled to continue to use Career Development Services for information, advice and guidance for up to three years after ​graduation - or indeed, for as long as we feel we can still be of service. 

 Both the UMAX Jobshop and CareerHub sites are available to graduates.
