We are almost halfway through the summer term but there are still opportunities coming up to help you with your employability. By working on your employability alongside your studies you can get additional skills, meet new people, create connections and receive additional recognition. Why not take a look below to see opportunities coming up that you can still get involved with!


On 16th June we are bringing back Alumnight, taking place from 5.30 pm in The Courtyard. This is a networking event and is a chance for you to develop key skills and meet new people.

This event is a great chance for you to-

  • Meet our Employability Experts who can give you advice and share opportunities
  • Meet like-minded students
  • Have a chance to think about how to prepare for graduating

This is a networking event meaning you will have plenty of opportunities to meet our Alumni and Employability Experts, ask questions, get advice and find out about opportunities

This event is free to attend but to guarantee your spot please register here
