Careers

Employability is at the heart of our Integrated Health and Social Work degree.

Group work, presentations and report writing will help you develop personal qualities such as self-confidence, emotional intelligence, reflectiveness, team working and stress tolerance, which will support your employability when you graduate.

We also focus on global and cultural awareness, supporting you to be able to work cross-culturally.

The course is dual accredited* by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Upon successful completion of the course you will be awarded Foundation Chartered Manager Status, a professional status for aspiring or early-career managers, and you will be eligible to use the credentials ‘fCMgr’, which could help give you an employability advantage.

We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge and skills they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they can offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through live briefs, work-based projects, and placements.

Our free Employability Service will help you take practical steps to follow your chosen career path, secure jobs, and work experience, or even start your own business.

Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You might decide to stay at ARU and study for a Masters. We’re planning a range of postgraduate degrees at ARU Peterborough, and there is a selection of existing courses in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
