Academic Calendar:

Employer Visits

On-campus employer presentations provide you with direct access to future graduates. We can arrange group meetings, informational sessions between students and your company or book individual interviews with selected students. In order to promote career opportunities to distance students we can also record our presentation and upload the link to our website or facilitate a webinar (online) presentation. 

Visits to campus contribute favourably to an organisation’s profile amongst graduates and can have tangible benefits that extend beyond immediate recruitment. Wednesday lunch time, between 12:00pm-2:00pm, is often the best time to hold presentation as this is our common hour and no lectures are scheduled. To book your Information Session, please email [email protected] or visit
