Students were given the chance to network with a range of leading companies at our recent employability fairs, which took place at our St Mary’s Road site earlier this month. 

The fairs were attended by over 60 leading companies, including the Crown Prosecution Service, House of Commons, British Psychological Society, Ministry of Defence, New Look, Incorporated Society of Musicians and Envy Post Production.

This provided students with the opportunity to promote themselves to employers, and build a valuable network of key industry contacts.

Along with the chance to network, students could also attend employer-led career workshops.

One of those workshops included UWL graduates talking about how they'd made it into the music business.
