Careers, Employability and Enterprise Events

The University of Suffolk Careers, Employability and Enterprise Team run a variety of events and activities throughout the year. We offer events through a hybrid approach, enabling us to connect students to an even greater selection of organisations from around the world.

This also means that students can frequently access events, even if they are not able to attend campus, or can watch workshops and webinars back in their own time if they were unable to attend on the day. Current students and graduates can find out what's on by visiting the Events section of Handshake.

Events can include:

  • Careers fairs, days and weeks, with activity both in-person and online covering a broad range of industries, and specific sectors 
  • Webinars, workshops and panels, either in-person, online or both. In 2022, we launched a weekly webinar series, connecting a new organisation and their opportunities with our students every single week in term. Where possible, these are recorded and stored on our Brightspace (the student VLE) to enable students to watch at a later date
  • Interactive activities, including mock assessment centres and training days
  • Bootcamps and Weekenders to support students and graduates pursuing business start-ups
  • Employer drop-ins on campus, with many bringing lunch or refreshments with them to make sure that you can still connect with them, and have time for lunch. Check out this feedback from local SME, Coderus

Key Events for 2023/24

We have some exciting events coming in 2023/24 academic year at our Waterfront Campus. Set your reminders, mark your calendars or put it on a Post-It, so you don't miss out. If you are an organisation that is interested in attending one of these FREE events please register here.

The Suffolk Careers Fair was on 31st October from 11.00am to 2.00pm. 

Who attended

We will be hosting the Spring Careers Fair in week commencing 11th March 2024. More information will follow.

These interactive, online webinars will be held in collaboration with a wide variety of organisations throughout the academic year, so keep checking out the Events section on Handshake to find out what's coming up. Because they'll be online, we'll be recording as many of them as possible; so if you can't attend on the day, it doesn't mean you will miss out.
