Preparation Materials for Appointments
The Career Development Service has developed a unique student focused system designed to maximise the benefits that you receive from each appointment. Before attending your appointment, you are encouraged to undertake some preparation so our advisers can tailor their advice more closely to your needs. These materials are designed to help you start thinking about the issues you have identified, and shouldn’t take too long to complete.
You only need to bring along the preparation document(s) for the type of appointment you have selected, however please do feel free to explore them all.
Below are links to the preparation documents for the different appointments:
