We have plenty to support those budding entrepreneurs. If you're a budding entrepreneur, we host plenty of events to support you, from live entrepreneur lounge sessions to startup clinics. Go to our full itinerary of startup events.
The Careers and Employability Service has involvement in a number of fairs both online and in-person across the university campus. These will allow you to learn about different opportunities from employers and organisations, and understand how to boost your CV and career prospects. Throughout the year, we work alongside other teams across the university to support fairs that will help you learn about the options available to get you career-ready. These include faculty and course-specific fairs, employer visits, and planning for the summer.
Please note: Due to current circumstances, our fairs and events are hosted virtually.
