After Graduation: Careers and Employability

SPIRE graduates follow a wide range of careers, including climbing to the highest reaches of their chosen professions, or they go on to further study.

SPIRE alumni often come back to Keele to speak to our current students and also feature in our Spotlight on International Relations and Royal Institute of Philosophy lecture series: take a look at the Events page for more information on any upcoming talks.

See below for some examples of what our students did next.
