National Graduate Week

National Graduate Week 2021: Join The Biggest Ever Graduate Recruitment Event! (18th-22nd October)

National Graduate Week is an opportunity for graduates and soon-to-be graduates to gain insider information on getting hired by the UK’s top employers, listen to inspiring talks and learn about postgraduate study.

Graduates and students have access to a wide range of live events. From skills sessions to application workshops, top tips for postgraduate study, looking after your mental health, the graduate market and everything in between. There will also be opportunities to quiz hiring managers and graduates on the organisation’s culture, pathways, application process and what working life is really like during live Q&A sessions.

Michelle Donelan, Minister of State for Universities says:

“Graduating in any year is a big step. I still remember the mixture of excitement and nervousness I felt as a graduate deciding what was to come, and I welcome National Graduate Week as a brilliant way to support students in making this transition. Whether they are planning to jump straight into work, get experience as a paid intern or extend their studies, I urge organisations, universities and students to get involved this week and help ensure every graduate has the support they need to choose the career path that works best for them and their futures.” 

We understand that this can be a challenging stage in a graduate’s life, which is why we’re passionate about ensuring every graduate has access to support and guidance to make well-informed decisions on their next steps.
