Careers events for International students

The below careers events include those run externally in collaboration with other universities and external partners, and events run by Careers Network targeted specifically at International students.

Some events give our International students information on how they might find employment within the UK. Other events may be run by global employers who are aiming to recruit International students for work in non-UK arms of their business.

International Career Network

The Universities of Birmingham, Nottingham and Warwick careers services, together with our business schools, make up the BNW International Careers Network (ICN). Throughout the academic year, the BNW hold various collaborative careers events for international students, including the Connect series.

China Connect, India Connect and Africa Connect are a series of digital programmes offering engagement opportunities with global employers, industry insight and country-specific labour market intelligence through a series of short videos, webinars, and podcasts. Click on each Connect programme to find out more (student login required):

Asia Careers Insight Series

Recordings are now available for the webinars from the Asia Careers Insight Series (ACIS) which took place in March 2021. This was an opportunity to familiarise yourself with organisations looking to hire students and graduates across Asia and included a series of employer presentations, panel discussions and skills workshops to help you enhance your employability and become more attractive to local and international employers. 

ACIS sessions are open to all students and graduates – regardless of nationality, degree or year of study. Many organisations will consider a number of nationalities when recruiting and offer a variety of opportunities, from internships, placements and graduate schemes to part-time roles and roles undertaken remotely.
