We hold several fairs throughout the year and they are very popular with students from all year groups and academic disciplines. We are running these as virtual events for the time being, to ensure the safety of our students and employers.
Careers and Placements Fair
Our flagship event of the year, this fair is held in October for employers from all sectors, looking to recruit onto graduate schemes, year-long placements and summer internships. We usually have over 1,400 students attending from all year groups and academic disciplines. In 2020 due to the pandemic, we held a two-day virtual fair on the 21 and 22 October.Register your interest
Part-time Jobs Fair
Royal Holloway prides itself in having plenty of opportunities for students to work while they study. Our busiest Part-time Jobs Fairs see in the region of 1,500 students looking for casual and vacation work, keen to develop their employability skills. If you are a local employer and have a good number of part-time or vacation roles on offer, then one of these fairs may be of interest. We hold them in early October and early January, at the beginning of the autumn and spring terms. In light of the pandemic, our October 2020 and January 2021 fairs were virtual events.
Many of our students go into careers in teaching, and we hold our Teaching Fair at the beginning of the autumn term for education training providers, alongside workshops and alumni panels to inspire and inform the next generation of teachers.
Since the introduction of our LLB Law degree in 2015, the programme has gone from strength to strength and in November 2018 we held our inaugural fair, which was very popular with employers and students. We are very interested in hearing from you if you have vacation schemes or training contracts to offer our students.
Showcasing employers and organisations with equality and diversity at the heart of what they do, this smaller fair is an opportunity for you to engage with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and academic disciplines, whether you have live roles to promote, or want to have conversations ahead of the busy autumn recruitment season. This event is run in collaboration with some of our student societies and collectives, such as FemSoc, LGBTQ+, African Caribbean Society, Women of Colour, Disabled Students, Commuting Students and International Students.
