Why attend the Internship and Graduate Expo?

Wherever you are in your studies, this expo is the perfect chance to explore opportunities and secure an internship or post-study graduate role that could take you to the next step.

Internships: The ticket to your future career

There is no better way to prepare for your future than to actually give it a test drive, and the best way to do that is through an internship. Our Internship and Graduate Expo brings graduate employers and internship providers to campus so you can meet and connect with them directly, to begin making your mark on the world of work.

Graduate roles: Opening doors into the world of work

It can take time and effort to translate your learnings from your degree into a meaningful career. Wherever you are in your studies, this expo is the perfect chance to explore opportunities and secure an internship or post-study graduate role that could take you to the next step.

The world is your oyster

Internships and graduate roles are available all over the world, and an overseas placement, either virtually or in-person, can be a fantastic way to gain valuable workplace experience. Don't let Covid-19 impact your global ambitions.

Now is the time to create your future

Successful internships and first-time jobs are often just the first step to a bright future! The employers and recruiters at the expo will be eager to meet you and hear about your goals. Research the organisations who will be attending and have your questions ready.
