Our School’s Annual Nursing and Midwifery Careers Fair was a resounding success yest again, with many students securing full-time employment on this day again.
More than 300 students from nursing and midwifery courses within the School of Health and Life Sciences attended the fair at the University’s Lanarkshire Campus on 29th May 2019. There were more than 20 exhibitors, including NHS Scotland, nursing agencies, national and local government agencies, and private healthcare providers. Feedback on the event from students and exhibitors was extremely positive, and again this year, a number of students secured employment on the day and many others left with offers of interviews.
Exhibitors commented on the efficient organisation of the event and on the quality of the students from our school, highlighting the fact that 98% of our graduates are in work or participating in further study six months after graduation according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency’s (HESA) latest figures.
James Taylor, Deputy Dean of the School of Health and Life Sciences said afterwards:
“It was a pleasure to welcome our exhibitors, many of whom had travelled from across the UK, on what is the fourth occasion we have held this event, and the first at our new award winning Lanarkshire campus, to meet and connect with our students. “It was very clear from the interactions and engagement that took place between the exhibitors and students that this was a very positive event. I wish to acknowledge my appreciation to all those involved in providing this opportunity to our students.”
