Career Services

After you graduate we offer you three years of career support.

Oxford Brookes University's Careers and Employment Centre can help you whether you are looking for your first graduate job, a work placement, part-time/casual work or going on to further study. They can help you with interview techniques, mock interviews and career pathways. There is also an online database or 'Talent Bank' that you can access for current graduate jobs. Please note that the interview support can be virtual through skype or on the telephone.

For more details about how the Careers and Employment Centre can help you, please visit their website.

The Hand Clinic

Do you have problems with your hands? Do you have difficulty doing things you used to do, or want to do?

The Hand Clinic at Marston Road is part of Oxford Brookes University. It is the first hand clinic in the country based within a university.

The Clinic is led by a registered and experienced occupational therapist and former Brookes University OT lecturer who specialises in hand therapy together with other lecturers of the OT programme (all HCPC registered therapists), and is also a recognised provider for some insurance companies.

The Clinic is also a learning environment and, with your permission, OT and physiotherapy students will be offered opportunities to observe the Clinic consultation and treatment sessions.
