Workshops & Events

Throughout the year, there are a whole range of fairs, workshops and other events that all students are welcome to attend.

Browse through the list below, and click on the links to find out more or to book a place (this is just so that we can get an idea of how many people will attend - there is no cost, and if you then can't attend, you are able to go back in later and cancel your place).



Fairs are opportunities for you to come and meet with a range of employers/organisations, who normally have stalls that you can walk around and chat to people. It's an informal event - a great opportunity to find out more information and meet people.  



Workshops are more formal events, that take place at a certain time, and are run by members of the Careers & Employability team. It's a chance to find out more information, and receive help and advice related to the topic of the session.
