Details and how to book 

Our mini fairs are located centrally on campus and can accommodate 15 exhibitors for each fair. All current students and recent graduates are encouraged to attend.

This fair is aimed at current Exeter students from all disciplines and all years of study, at our Penryn and Truro campuses. Students can use the event to meet with organisation representatives, and find out what options there are for part time work during term time as well as over holidays. This fair offers a mixture of internal and external employers attending the fair with a variety of vacancies.

Attracting students from across the campuses, this is a great event to showcase your opportunities and build your brand on campus.

This fair offers volunteering, internships, placements and graduate opportunities within the third sector and all aspects of the public sector. Our students already support, volunteer and intern at a wide range of charities, NGO’s and public sector bodies whilst studying with us, as well as engaging in various social enterprise initiatives through our ENACTUS society. Together with the academic subject specialism offered at our Cornwall Campuses, our students develop skill sets to become a real asset to any organisation in these sectors, and this is a great event to showcase your opportunities and build your brand on campus.

Covering the spectrum from Postgraduate level teacher training schemes to community education and learning development. Careers within the teaching and education fields are ones that many of our students aspire to, whether that be in a school or further / higher education setting with a community, heritage or environmental organisation with outreach aims. Our students are already honing their skills through our Mini Teach workshops, Learning for Teaching and Public History modules as well as setting up their own after school clubs or volunteering as education officers at various local and national public organisations.

The Penryn Campus has a large cohort of STEM based students enrolled on courses in all areas of Biosciences, Engineering and Maths who are keen to meet industry professionals and scope out the opportunities which may be available to them now or in the future as graduates. From environmental consultancy, renewable energy, environmental compliance reporting or CSR, our students and graduates are making a difference worldwide. This fair is a must for organisations looking to recruit high calibre, junior level staff in this sector.


This fair is an opportunity for organisations that offer positions abroad to meet students and discuss opportunities to work and gain experience outside the UK. Exhibitors come from various organisations offering projects, internships, casual work, voluntary roles, gap years, travel and other opportunities abroad.
