Student Success | 2012

Introduction to student success With around nearly 400,000 students graduating every year, we know that the bar is set high when it comes to graduate recruiting. When an employer selects candidates for interview they take qualifications as a starting point and then look for evidence of what additional skills, attributes and experience our graduates have to offer. At Plymouth University we offer a range of opportunities to help students extend their personal and academic development. We also encourage and support students to engage in opportunities and competitions at a national and international level that will help them make the most of their university experience. Taking up these opportunities also helps to make our students more employable, setting them on the road to securing their first graduate job and building their future careers. Things like work experience, participation in clubs and societies, voluntary work, being a course representative, competing in competitions; these all add value to a CV and help make our graduates stand out. Through our Plymouth Award our students can gain additional recognition for extra-curricular activities, and it is an award which has the endorsement of many prestigious employers, both local and national. This booklet provides examples of some of the fantastic things that our students are doing to enhance their university experience, and lay the foundations for future success in their career. We hope these success stories will inspire others to take advantage of the opportunities that Plymouth University has to offer. Marc Lintern Head of Employability
