Since 1995 Manchester University has offered students the following employment guarantee:
"If at six months following graduation with a baccalaureate degree, a graduate of Manchester University has not secured employment after an appropriate effort to obtain it (or has not enrolled in a graduate program), he or she can return to the University for additional undergraduate courses and career preparation for one year without a charge for tuition."
To qualify for this guarantee, students must follow a program of preparation before graduation that supplements their course of study.
The employment guarantee program requires:
- Participation in an internship, a full and successful program of campus employment, or both;
- Participation in at least one significant campus extracurricular activity, extensive volunteer service, or both;
- An advisor's letter of recommendation; and
- Full participation in the Office of Career Service's program of career assistance and employment preparation.
This employment guarantee program is open to any Manchester student who meets the above criteria.
