In your final year at university? Starting to think about what to do next? Then What Next? is for you!
What Next? is an event designed to help School of Arts students, whether in Film, History of Art or Drama, think about what they are going to do next year and beyond.
“It was a very useful and great event! Had some inspiring conversations with the people who are/have been in the similar kind of situation” – Final Year Student on What Next? 2018
“It was an opportunity to ask the questions that I wanted to ask. It gave me a chance to sit down and think about exactly what I wanted to do after graduating.” – Final Year Student on What Next? 2017
What Next? takes the form of an Un-Conference, which will allow you to set the agenda and explore the ideas that most interest you. You’ll have the chance to have conversations with a range of people, including alumni and arts professionals from outside the university, the careers advisors, and School of Arts lecturers – and, most importantly, each other.
You’ll be able to discuss such subjects as the nuts and bolts of jobseeking, postgraduate study, and how to go about building your dream career – or anything else you want to talk about! You’ll also find out about the National Student Survey, how it works and why it’s important.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’ll be CAKE, WINE, ENTERTAINMENT and PRIZES. What’s not to like?
Please note that this event is ONLY for final year Undergraduates and Postgraduates (i.e. those graduating in 2019) who study a Single Honours, Joint Honours or PG subject in the School of Arts.
