The online event will highlight graduate and internship opportunities with a range of businesses in China and South East Asia.

Companies delivering webinars include Barclays, Hilti,, Microsoft, Hays and FDM Group.

The high calibre of employers taking part reflects the reputation of Scottish universities worldwide. The standard of education and English fluency that international students gain from studying in Scotland is much sought after.


Webinars will take place every morning for the duration of the careers fair and will last for 30-40 minutes. Sessions will take the form of a company recruitment presentation followed by question-and-answer sessions.

The event is organised in partnership with the Universities of Glasgow and St Andrews careers services. It is open to all Chinese and South East Asian students and recent graduates from any university in Scotland.
