Activities for higher education advisers

Here at City, University of London, we consider it an important part of our service to provide free, accessible and relevant information sessions to staff in schools, colleges and career services on developments in the Higher Education sector.

Teachers and Higher Education Advisers Day

Wednesday 2nd May 2018

This annual event is a great opportunity for you to visit City, University of London and to receive important updates about our courses and the university sector in general. The theme of this year’s event will be focused on “Graduate Careers”, with a range of expert speakers who will aid you in advising your students on graduate career pathways from our courses. These speakers will include City staff from courses including Nursing, Midwifery, Engineering and Law, as well as Cass Business School.

City’s own careers department will be on hand during the day to answer your questions about how your students can prepare for their careers, and can provide information on the opportunities they offer to help City students become ‘complete graduates’. You can also meet current students who will discuss how they are using the careers service and these opportunities to best prepare for their future career. You will also have an opportunity to tour the City campus if you have not visited us before.

The event is completely free, including complementary lunch and refreshments during the day.

The full agenda* is listed below and the booking form can be accessed below. If you have any questions, please do get in touch via schoolsliaison@city.ac.uk.
