Event date:

Location: Heythrop College


On Thursday 19th November the HSU welcomes a panel of four distinguished guests to meet with students and share experiences about their own careers. Come down to hear their advice on how to start, and then progress, your career post-studies and take this valuable opportunity to ask them any questions. The panel will be preceded and followed by a selection of cheese & wine, after which students are invited to continue networking in the HSU Bar with recent graduates. This is an opportunity to think about your future in both the long and short term as well as hopefully an opportunity to expand your own network of contacts.

Book your place


6pm - 6.30pm:    Cheese & Wine served in the Newman Room

6.30pm-7.30pm:  Panel Discussion followed by Q&A  

7.30pm onwards: Guests move to the HSU Bar for networking
