Our students have a wealth of knowledge that spans many sectors. We find that employers like you often wish to come onto campus to meet with our students. With that in mind, we support a number of on-campus initiatives and activities.
Every year we run two very popular events enabling you to engage with talented students and to promote your organisation’s opportunities:
- STEM fair
- Spring fair
- Autumn fair
Typically all events are usually oversubscribed with employer interest. To register your interest for any of these events visit our Careers fairs webpage. We don’t operate on a first come, first served basis. Instead we review each employer’s offering and make an informed decision on appropriateness for each booking.
Work Placement Programme lectures and workshops
We run a second year Work Placement Programme comprising lectures and workshops embedded in the students’ academic timetable. The aim of the lectures and workshops is to prepare our students looking for industrial work placements and internships by providing them with guidance, advice and support as they progress with their placement search. We would welcome your input. Lectures would give you the opportunity to reach between 100 and 200 students.

Guest technical lectures
Guest technical lectures embedded in our academic curriculum can be an effective way for you to meet our students. If you feel that you can offer some expertise in a particular area then please select a programme from the programme catalogue and this will lead you to the taught modules for each degree. Please select a module and we’ll put you in contact with our lead academic for that area to arrange a session.
