While it is important to enjoy your university experience in the moment, it is always worth having an idea in the back of your mind about what you plan to do when you leave university. It might be further study, it might be travelling or it might be heading straight into a career.
Accessing your university careers services is a good way to receive advice about what options are open to you, whether you might need to learn any new skills, internships that will help you to gain experience and guidance for writing CVs and cover letters.
