Careers workshops and webinars

University of Bradford students and graduates are welcome to attend our regular workshops led by employers, professional experts and Career and Employability Services team members.

Careers workshops and webinars

Our careers sessions have three themes this year:

  • Career Essentials - covering the employability topics you need to know about
  • Professional Insights - guest speakers from a range of industries sharing insights into careers, job roles and recruitment
  • Expanding Your Horizons - opportunities abroad, further study and more.

We will be hosting a combination of webinars and on-campus sessions, make sure to check the details when booking.
