Workshops and events

WorkFest

WorkFest – helping you to accelerate your career 

WorkFest is a series of events designed to connect students with industry, raise aspirations, improve employability skills, and showcase employers. This is an ideal opportunity for you to meet employers, find out what they offer, start networking or just browse with an open mind.  

If you're a first-year investigating ideas or thinking ahead to an exciting placement opportunity for your second year, or a finalist looking for inspiration, we have something for you.

WorkFest takes place from Monday 21 October to Friday 25 October at our Newton Park campus. We'll also make a visit in our Business Bus at Locksbrook campus the following week.
