A big thank you to all those who took part in the virtual networking event on Thursday 18th March. Despite some technical difficulties towards the beginning of the evening, the event was a huge success with 21 alumni taking part as guest speakers and over 60 students signed up to attend! Our guest speakers shared their careers experience and helped students learn about the world beyond university and all of the opportunities they have available to them. At the end of the event we held a prize draw for both students and guests, so congratulations to Lily Firth, Urwah Mirza, and Hannah Evans for winning the vouchers!
