Penryn Campus Mini Fairs

What are Mini Fairs?

At our Penryn campus we offer a slightly different careers fair programme to that available to students based at our Streatham campus. On the back of feedback from Penryn students we deliver a series of smaller sector focused Mini Fairs enabling all students to get access to a wide range of companies, organisations and university teams.

Our fairs typically run from 11am – 2pm and we hold them in the social street in a busy part of Campus so students can access the stand as they pass through. Each of last year’s Mini Fairs attracted approximately 100 students all keen to speak with the exhibitors. Take the opportunity to come along and talk to the exhibitors.

Penryn students also have the opportunity to visit our Streatham based Fairs, pop in to the Career Zone to find out more.
