Activities for Careers Advisors and Teachers
As well as offering an extensive range of presentations and activities for students, we also organise events for teachers and careers advisers. Our activities aim to inform participants about the University as well as providing an opportunity to meet our schools liaison staff and network with other schools from around the UK. A brief overview of the activities we offer is given below. Please click the titles for further information about those which you are interested in.
Please note that all of the activities listed here are offered free of charge.
This annual full day event is held in the latter half of the Easter term at our University Park Campus and is designed for all careers advisors and teachers working with sixth form students or equivalent.
This annual conference is held during the summer term in London. It is an informal event specifically for those careers advisors and teachers who work with sixth form students or equivalent in London and the South East.
Fantastic organisation and very pleasant staff and students. The best I have been on.

Open Day Teachers' Lunch
If you are accompanying a group of your students to our June open day, you will be invited to attend the complimentary teachers' lunch. During your meal, you will have the opportunity to talk to schools liaison staff and admissions tutors from a variety of academic departments, and ask any questions you may have.
For the dates of our upcoming open days and to book a place for your school or college group, please visit www.nottingham.ac.uk/opendays.
Lunch itself was excellent and it was very helpful to talk with people from various departments.
