Graduate Destinations

Once you have chosen your degree subject, don’t feel constrained by your choice - many employers are looking for a range of graduate skills, not necessarily subject knowledge. Almost 70% of graduate jobs now don’t require a specific discipline.

Most of our graduates enter employment after graduation, some go on to postgraduate study, whilst others take time out to travel. Each year, Student Careers & Skills at Warwick carry out a survey to find out exactly what graduates are doing. See the latest results.

I already knew that I wanted to work in radio before I came to Warwick and my CV was packed with experience by the time I left. By joining societies like RaW, our student radio station, I was able to experiment with different roles and styles of broadcasting, and to network with some very successful and knowledgeable alumni. This helped me to decide precisely what I wanted to do in my career and how I could go about achieving it. Working on innovative projects such as our Varsity (sports tournament) coverage gave me lots of ideas and examples of my creativity to draw upon for job applications and interviews.

My degree spanned five years –four years studying for my MEng and one year working as a software developer at Lionhead Studios. The course was demanding but that’s because it prepares you for the problems that you’ll face in industry. The skills and lessons I learnt on my course were exactly what I relied on every day at Lionhead. Now I’m a Warwick graduate with experience in the video games industry, I’m ready to pursue my dream of working for a game studio in Canada, which is exactly where I’m heading. I couldn’t have followed that dream without my Warwick degree.
