Queen's Career Development & International Networking Programme

The Queen’s Career Development & International Networking Programme will take place in a different global city each year. This development programme provides students with an active learning opportunity on campus and in an international setting within a multicultural group (note: the precise location may vary in years beyond 2020).

The programme offers a significant international networking opportunity with alumni and individuals with strong connections to Northern Ireland. Activities will include information sessions, workshops, guest talks and teamwork. It will also include a number of on-site visits to employers and other organisations associated with the programme and areas being considered by the programme participants. Students will be able to develop career prospects, engage in discussion and gain insights into careers they had not previously considered. They will also be expected to evaluate and consider a large amount of complex information from a variety of sources (e.g. governments; NGO; international organisations; employers; community groups; health professionals/organisations; research and financial experts). This programme is a significant career development experience and a significant opportunity to implement, refine and seek feedback on your current skillset. The students will receive a wide range of on campus training including presentation skills, goal setting, future working arrangements and effective networking.

Open to full time Undergraduate students in any programme of study, however applicants must be from a Widening Participation background.
