Explore, experience and progress your career goals with events and workshops from our Careers team as well as industry experts.
Throughout the year we run a number of events to help connect you with employers, develop your skills, hear from industry experts and explore different career paths.
Workfest is hosted twice a year in Autumn and Spring. It offers two full weeks of career enhancing events designed to help you connect with industry, raise aspirations, improve employability skills and meet employers. It's open to all courses and year groups.
In addition to offering general career sessions for all, you can expect some sessions to be focused on the following:
- Autumn - explore your options, meet employers, hone your skills
- Spring - experience different industries, secure placements and work experience
You're welcome to attend all sessions as they will include information that is transferable to different industries and allow you to plan ahead for your future career progression.

Please note events are currently being hosted virtually.
Workfest+ is an additional series of events running throughout the year, offering skills workshops, employer presentations, Q+As and more!
