Update 18 March 2020

GCU London is takes the health and safety of its students and staff very seriously and is carefully monitoring the situation around the coronavirus outbreak. As a result, the GCU London Careers has some additional information to consider during this time.

GCU London Careers will continue to provide a service to our students and graduates on a Wednesday and Thursday, until normal teaching has resumed. Students can either book a telephone or Skype appointment via sandrarhule.youcanbook.me.

Please remember to include a telephone number and email address, and the Careers Consultant will contact you directly. If your appointment is for a CV/Application review or a Mock Interview, please email sandra.rhule@gcu.ac.uk and attach a copy of your CV in advance of your appointment. Alternatively, students can opt for an online CV review, by also sending your CV to the above email address.

Students will be notified if there are any changes to these interim arrangements.

The Careers Service at GCU aims to provide quality, effective careers guidance, advice and information to empower students and graduates to make informed decisions about their careers, learning and continuing professional development.
