Enterprise through Events
As a student with us, you will take part in a varied programme of events and activities, to widen your experiences and be inspired by academics, creatives and professionals from a range of disciplines and sectors.
‘PEEK INSIDE’ EVENTS
Creatives and professionals regularly visit the campus to deliver guest lectures as part of your programme, as well as extra-curricular workshops and skills sessions. These insightful events are always well attended and are an excellent way of gaining an insider’s perspective on working life with a particular discipline or sector.
As well as hosting events on campus, many of our partners offer site visits to their London offices or headquarters. These opportunities offer you the chance to witness the inner workings of various businesses and organisations, so that you can discover the type of working environment that would suit you best.
Loughborough University is renowned for hosting the biggest one-day University careers fair in the UK. The Graduate Recruitment and Placement fair includes stalls from over 200 exhibitors and attracts over 6,000 students every year. Students from Loughborough University London will be able to book a free return coach service to attend this free event.
As well as access to the UK’s biggest careers fair, you will be invited to attend a range of networking events for students to engage with employers and build confidence liaising with industry professionals. These informal sessions are often held after teaching has finished, and are a great way to practice interacting with new people and sharing ideas.
Employability webinars and workshops
Our Employability workshops and webinars offer practical advice and guidance on developing your skills, widening your professional experience and transferring your achievements into employability assets. Last year’s topics included: Top Tips from International Recruiters, Making the Most of Online Professional Networking and An Introduction to the Tier 1, Graduate Entrepreneurship Visa.
Our workshops take all forms and sizes. From a short sharp how to set up a company through to a weekend ideas factory, our workshops offer quick insightful ways to get your own business or social enterprise ideas off the group. Many of our enterprise events happen in the evening and are advertised around campus, via email and in the Enterprise Through the Curriculum module.
