Our final recruitment fair of the academic year welcomes companies from a range of sectors and is used to promote casual, part-time and summer work, internships/vacation schemes, year-in-industry placements, graduate roles and postgraduate study. 

A smaller event in comparison to our autumn careers fairs, the Summer Recruitment Fair provides an intimate opportunity to meet with approximately 400 current Exeter students. The event is marketed to Exeter students from all years and disciplines, so you can expect those in the first year through to their final year to attend. Our graduates are also welcome.
