Prepare for a Careers Fair

To help you prepare, the Career Zone deliver 'Prepare for the Fair' sessions ahead of major fairs which you can book via Handshake. Any new sessions being delivered will be listed both here and in Handshake.

Whilst we don't have any sessions running currently, you can view our Prepare for the Fair resource.


Please note that photographs will be taken at these events for marketing and training purposes.  We intend to use these images, where appropriate, in our promotional material to tell others about the benefits of the University. This may take the form of entries on the University's website, in emails, printed and digital media, to highlight to other students, prospective students, employers, staff and other stakeholders of the activities organised by the Employer Engagement and Student Employment Team.
