The Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair is the largest fair in our academic year. It will take place 21 and 22 October between 2pm and 6pm.

It’s an opportunity for our students to network with over 200 employers and to secure a graduate role, placement or internship starting in 2021. For employers, it presents an opportunity to recruit top talent from one of the UK’s leading universities.

With the event going virtual for 2020, we want to ensure that both students and exhibitors get the most out of the new event format. The following checklists will help you prepare for when our virtual doors open on 21 October. We look forward to seeing you then!
