Welcome to your first year at St Edmund Hall! We hope you are settling in well. As there is a great deal to be thinking about in the first few weeks as a fresher, there’s no sense adding to this by thinking about Careers Support so early, but you may wish to start thinking about internships, voluntary work and making the most of the remainder of your time in Oxford, and so have a number of talks and events taking place in Hilary and Trinity Terms.

Hilary Term

  • Introduction to Internships and Other Work Experience

Trinity Term

  • How to make the most of your first long vac

Once in place, forthcoming careers event details and registration links will be available above.

Next Steps

The structure of next year’s careers programme revolves around your awareness and sentiments regarding a future career, and so it would be wise to think over the summer about where you might place yourself in the adjacent diagram.

The top right quadrant is entitled 'I have a clear focus that I am working towards', the bottom left quadrant is entitled 'I have ideas but I'm not sure what's right for me' and the bottom right quadrant is entitled 'I am well organised and clear about my next steps'.
