Widening Participation

Careers events

Career exploration events designed for Pathways to the Professions and expanded to other professions.

The careers days designed for the Pathways to the Professions project (for Medicine, Law and Veterinary Medicine) have taken off across the University and the extra events are run on an annual basis, open to local state school and college pupils. Generally, these events take place during the October school holiday and usually cover Engineering, Biomedical Science, Social Work and Nursing. We also usually run an Accounting & Finance insight event earlier in the year (February / March).

The content and dates of these events in 2018 are likely to be finalised in late summer 2018. Schools and colleges are contacted with information about these events a month or so prior to the dates with details of the content of the days and how to register to attend.
