Information for Students
The Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair on 20 October, 2-6pm, offers a great opportunity to chat live with employers who are recruiting students and graduates just like you.
If you are in your final year, this event starts the recruitment process for you.
For those not in your final year you can find career-defining placement and internship opportunities or find out more about the organisations and opportunities available to Queen’s students.
