We present our postgraduates with the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills. Learning opportunities presented by Anthropology are relevant to careers in a diverse range of areas like development, health, youth & community, government, social research, market research, policy, culture, heritage, and media.

Some of our postgraduate students use their skills developed in Anthropology to progress into careers with no obvious link to the subject, but that use the skills they have developed. These careers range from marketing and public relations, to finance and consultancy. Examples of recent employers of Anthropology postgraduate students include Save the Children, HM Prison Service, Civil Service, Durham University, VSO, Office for National Statistics, National Graduate Development Programme (local authority graduate scheme). Postgraduate students have also had recent success in finding positions with NGOs such as Concern Universal and Kenwa.
