Festival of Careers

This year's Festival of Careers will take place between 7-11 October.

The Festival of Careers is more than just a Careers fair. It’s an entire week filled with activities dedicated to helping you find out more about what is available in the world of work and study. It gives you the opportunity to meet employers, consider your options and learn more about yourself.

The best bit is there is something for everyone. Whether you’re a first year studying History or a finalist studying Engineering, the festival is open and relevant to all.
