Postgraduate Society Panel Discussion

Panel Discussion: Working in the UK as an Ethnic Minority/Interational Student

An Alumni and supporters event
Date14 July 2022
Time18:00 to 19:00

This event is hosted by the Postgraduate Society and aims to touch on what comes next after University, drawing on the real-life experiences that ethnic minority/international students and alumni face in the working world.

Given that there is a lack of discussion around this topic, the Postgraduate Society has decided to create this event with the hope that this panel discussion can shed light on the reality and provide some guidance for those who want to work in the UK.

We understand that international students would appreciate hearing these insights and we will be touching on topics including how to navigate the UK work culture and how to deal with possible discrimination in the workplace or during the job hunting process.
