The Postgrad Study Fair is back for the 26th year!
If you’re thinking about what you’d like to do after your undergrad degree or master’s, the Postgrad Study Fair will give you the chance to start planning your future.
The event will be held on Tuesday 19 November, from 12:30pm to 3:30pm in Manchester Academy.
At the fair, there will be over 60 universities and specialist institutions from across the UK and Europe with thousands of courses on offer. You can find the full exhibitor list and floor plan here.
You’ll be able to talk to course representatives from each different institution about their master’s and PhD courses, and find out about their vacancies and entry requirements.
If you’re worried about money and finances during postgraduate study, there will be a talk held on ‘Funding your Postgrad Study’. This will be held on the afternoon of the fair (Tuesday 19 November), from 3pm to 3:45pm in Simon Building, Room 2.61.
If you’re thinking about career prospects once you’ve completed postgraduate study, the Careers Service will also be on hand for help and advice.
