Career opportunities

The PhD is a vital vocational qualification for those planning to pursue an academic career. Recent graduates have gone on to research fellowships, and to part-time and full-time temporary and permanent academic positions in UK and overseas universities including Oxford, UCL, Manchester, Exeter and Leeds. As a non-vocational qualification, the PhD offers a wealth of highly valued transferable skills, and allows you to keep open a very wide range of career options in virtually any branch of professional employment in the public or private sector, including government, commerce, industry or teaching.

The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help support you with your goals for the future .
