Expert advice on careers, employment and business start-ups is available through the redeveloped Employability and Enterprise Centre.
In addition, the new Centre for Student Involvement will help those interested in boosting their employability through enterprise and volunteering, and gives you the chance to develop networks with other students.
The Centre is a unique partnership between Solent Students' Union and Southampton Solent University and serves as the campus hub for volunteering. It empowers students to access, lead and develop career enhancing voluntary activities through key functions such as access to funding, bookable space and signposting to other opportunities.
