It’s an excellent chance to make contacts and explore options – regardless of your career aspirations

Meet employers who can give you information on the types of opportunities available to PhD students/graduates and how you can build on the skills that are unique to researchers.

This event is for ALL PhD students, regardless of where you are in your research. It is not a careers fair recruitment event, it is a networking event to help you practice your skills and find out more information about the world of work outside of academia.

Come and practice your networking skills!

It is an opportunity to improve your networking skills, and for those who want to continue in academia, to make links with industrial and commercial employers that may be useful in your future career.
