Is work experience truly a part of education in the UK? The new academic year has more uncertainty and unknowns for students than previous years. How to get work experience, how to get a job when you graduate in this pandemic, how to launch your career – all these questions will be discussed Friday 25 September 2020.
We are bringing UK, EU and international students together with young people, world leaders and a brand new line up of education, work experience and legal experts to help make the most of studies.
