Book a 1:1 Appointment

We recommended that you attend a workshop or tutorial before you book a 1:1 appointment with a career consultant; most common career-related questions can be answered by attending one of these sessions. This allows us to focus on customization and specialization in your 1:1 appointment.

To book a 30 minute appointment with your faculty’s career education specialist, Nikki, please visit our online appointment booking system.


If you cannot find an appointment time with Nikki that fits your schedule, feel free to book an appointment with another Career Education Specialist at the Career Centre.
