Events

Careers and Employability events are open to all University of Portsmouth students or graduates, as long as you have graduated within the last five years. 

We have many regular sessions, employer presentations and several large events planned throughout the year.  You can find out about all the events we have coming up by accessing your MyCareer account.  You can also set up email alerts so you'll be the first to know when new events are listed.  

Click the event link to find out more and register for that event. Please do not register for an event if you do not intend to come to it. If you are no longer able to attend an event that you have registered for, please email careers@port.ac.uk to cancel your booking. These events have limited capacities and by registering and not attending you may be taking a space from someone else.
