Careers Fairs

Employer feedback about our students at the Festival of Careers.

Careers Fairs present a great event for employers to increase the awareness of their organisation and promote the opportunities on offer to students.

Following hugely positive feedback from exhibitors over the past three years, we are committed to making sure our careers fairs continue to raise the bar even further.

We want to ensure that the financial and time investment you make when partnering with the University of Leicester delivers a significant return on your investment.
