New year, new case studies

08 January 2020

With the start of a new year, the AGCAS Publications Team is once again looking for new graduate case studies to accompany the What can I do with my degree? series.

We'd like to ask for members' help in sourcing case studies from recent graduates for the following degree subjects:

  • Accountancy and finance
  • Archaeology
  • Biomedical sciences
  • Building and construction management
  • Business management
  • Civil engineering
  • Classics
  • Computer science
  • Creative writing
  • Criminology
  • Film and television production
  • Film studies
  • Photography

What does being a case study involve?

Completing a case study is a quick and simple process. We have a case study template for them to fill in, which follows a Q&A format, and all they need to do is to write their answers under the questions.

The subject gets to approve the final version ahead of publication and it can be a great advertising opportunity for them, their employer and your university.

Why do we need case studies?

The case studies enhance our WCIDWMD? series as they offer prospective and current students a real-life insight into potential careers, some of which they may not have realised they could do with their degree, as well as further study options.

Students get to see how other graduates have progressed into a range of jobs after graduating, what they do, what they like best, as well as the challenges. They also gain an understanding of how relevant a particular degree subject was in getting the job and receive tips on how to make the most of their degree.

Case studies undertaking further study provide an insight into why they’ve chosen further study and how they hope to move on afterwards.

How can I help?

If you know someone who would make an interesting case study to illustrate what you can do with a degree, the opportunities it can deliver, the different paths you can take (e.g. work, further study, professional training), please contact the team at publications@agcas.org.uk.
