KTP… how to change the world from beyond the campus

Find out more about opportunities to use your postgraduate degree outside of academia

With demand for academic jobs outstripping the number of roles available, many postgraduates are itching to understand how to use their skills and knowledge beyond the world of pure research. Stepping outside of academia on completion of your degree does not have to mean compromising on pursuing your interests… in fact it can provide you with career progression and work experience opportunities you may not otherwise have access to.
Covering a huge range of subject areas, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is one of the UK’s largest employment programmes placing talented graduates and postgraduates at the bridge between academia and business. Taking part in KTP will enable you to:

  • Work full-time within a company on an innovative project relevant to your degree
  • Receive dedicated line-management from a company supervisor while maintaining the mentoring and support of a university
  • Deliver results which are core to the development of a company's strategy
  • Access further qualifications and skills training in business, management and finance
  •  Have the chance of being offered permanent employment in your host company upon project completion.

The event will include:

  • 20 minute talk by Amy Bilton, KTP Manager
  • 25 minute Q&A session.

Learn what previous graduates from the programme say

  • “KTP allows you to keep a foot in the door with academia while gaining experience in an industrial setting and achieving deliverables for both”
    Mark Saw BSc, PhD
  • “You are at the heart of decision making and influencing. It would have taken me ten years in normal circumstances to have this kind of opportunity”
    Katie Riches BA, MSc
  • “Being a strategic driver in a company so soon after leaving university is an incredible opportunity and has fast tracked my career to a managerial position”
    Rachel Sinclair BA
