Sign in: Staff/Students
We know that all students face challenges as they plan for their future. We also know that for some of our students, there are additional challenges that can make this process even more difficult.
Our new UP initiative aims to level the playing field in as many ways as we can. Through a range of direct interventions, specialised activity, and by developing a unique set of resources and tools, we hope to equip you with the skills, connections, and confidence to be successful.
All eligible undergraduate students* can sign-up to our new UP Handshake platform which provides you with access to:
*Eligible students include; recipients of University of Liverpool bursaries, those with disrupted education (including Care Experience, Young Carers, Estranged, and Asylum Seekers/Refugees), students who are BAME, LGBTQ+, disabled, mature, and those from areas where participation in higher education is low. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The programme launches with a virtual event taking place on 20 October that will include an introduction to the programme, plus a panel of our employer partners who will be talking about the importance of diversity in the workplace and their opportunities for students and graduates.
Don’t miss out – click here to register for the UP programme.
The Careers & Employability team provide support to all students, focused on the three themes of Explore, Connect, and Apply – no matter what stage you’re at in your career thinking, we are here to help.
Visit Handshake to view jobs, events, and resource, or the Virtual Careers Studio to speak to our Career Coaches and find out more about the support available.
