GradEX is an integral part of a students’ time here at Staffs. It’s not only a celebration of our students work, but it also supports them to build much needed networks through engaging with key industry figures, which has often resulted in genuine job offers and career opportunities.
GradEX will once again be held in a hybridised format. The online portal is open to all final year projects, giving them the opportunity to connect with industry experts and graduate employers both locally and globally. There will also be in-person GradEX23 events held WC 5th June, where industry experts and graduate employers will be invited to come onto campus and talk to students about their project and career aspirations.? After the Thursday and Friday GradEX there will be a prize giving followed by a celebration that’s open to students and their families, Academics and employer judges, with canopies and drinks.
The GradEX23 portal will be open between Tuesday 2nd May to Tuesday 30th May for students to upload their final year project.
It is important to create opportunities for our students where they can shine, grow their professional network, and articulate the skills they have grown whilst here at university.
In previous years the portal had over 78,000 page views from users across 70 different countries including US, China, Australia, and South Africa. Considering this global success, GradEX23 is also once again welcoming showcases from final year students of our international partners for the second time.
