Set your preferences

Advantage lets you decide what information and services are relevant to you, so choose the categories which interest you the most. Don’t worry - you won’t miss out on any services or opportunities by setting your preferences; you can still look through all content in other categories.

  • Set your preferences - LOGIN using your university ID and password (eg ABC123).
  • You can specify your communications preferences, though you will always receive important information and event and appointment booking confirmations and updates.
  • You will receive a weekly job alerts newsletter which is tailored according to the subject and category preferences you set – ensure you do this so that you will receive details of the most relevant opportunities.
  • This service is just for you, so let us know how we can improve it. Please give us your feedback.
