GradLink has an extensive network of international graduates who have studied at universities in the UK and are now in graduate employment across the world. This section includes a number of unique case study examples of these. Graduates speak about how their UK education has helped them to get into their work, and what strategies they have used for reaching employers and showing they are the right candidate. We are very grateful for their invaluable input.
