At Loughborough, we're committed to helping you develop your employability and grounding your educational experience with examples from the real world so you’re ready to achieve your career ambitions. That commitment extends far beyond the classroom. Here are just some of the opporunities you can take advantage of as a postgraduate student here.

Careers Fairs and Employer Presentations

Loughborough University organises three massive recruitment careers fairs each year for all students. The Autumn fair is the largest of its kind in the UK, hosting approximately 200 employers who exhibit. Students have the opportunity to network with some of the UK’s leading employers including Aldi, GE, Microsoft, Caterpillar, Apple, Marks & Spencer and Decathlon.

During the Autumn and Spring terms, employers and organisations from all employment sectors come onto campus to present information about their company to students at Loughborough University. Employers who have visited recently include Nestle, Aldi, EY, Royal Navy and 3M.

You can find out more about our careers network online.
