The Cambridge University Careers Service provides careers advice and information to all current University of Cambridge undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The University is dedicated to providing strong support for the personal, professional and career development of all members.  The Cambridge University Skills Portal lists training and development opportunities available across the University together with links to useful resources outside the University.

Many of our students choose to carry on with further study towards graduate degrees such as the MPhil and PhD in Classics.

Employers have a high opinion of Classicists because they are hard-working, articulate, accurate and efficient, take new tasks in their stride and can master situations intelligently.

Some graduates go into research and teaching in schools and universities, or work in libraries and museums.  But most go into other careers – in law, the media, accountancy, the Civil Service, industry and business.  Our graduates include bankers, barristers, solicitors, actors, musicians and theatrical artistic directors.
