Put the 6th June in your calendars! LAUNCH is coming!

What is LAUNCH?

Much like our Life After Uni events in the past, LAUNCH is a unique opportunity for you to gain essential and relevant skills and knowledge before you leave university.



What’s happening?

There will be a range of workshops, to help you develop your skills and increase your confidence when entering the world of work after graduation. Check out the programme below:


10.00amREED: Empowering Yourself in the World of Work

11.00am – 12.30pmBarclay’s Life Skills: Interview skills

1.00pmGoogle: Social Media Strategy

2.00pmGoogle: Google Analytics (Know Your Business)

3.00pmLinkedIn: Connecting you to Opportunity Using LinkedIn


As well as these fantastic workshops, there will be:

  • A “Dress for Success” clothes swap, provided by Pilgrim’s Hospice. (We ask that a good will contribution is made to the hospice charity, to help support their work)
  • Professional portrait photographs, which can be used on your LinkedIn profile and other professional sites.
  • Video CVs: CVs aren’t just paper-based anymore. Often, employers will request applicants present a video interview or CV as part of the application process. Learning to think on your feet and sell yourself on the spot are essential skills when navigating the recruitment market.
  • An enterprise drop-in, for anyone thinking about starting their own business or becoming self-employed. Ge advice on business planing and financing your dream!
  • Unsure of what you’re going to do once you graduate? We will be offering multiple 1-1 careers advice appointments to help you create a plan and make those important decisions.
  • For a full CV MOT or help with an application visit the careers drop-in desk between the usual times, 1.00-5.00pm!


LAUNCH is a unique opportunity for you to develop yourself before you leave the University for good. Make sure you make the most of it. Book your place and get involved!
