We have joined our forces with Liverpool University Alumni and our graduates from all over the world! And together we organised a new talk series connecting you graduates living and working in different parts of the world sharing us their unique stories.
The purpose of this new event series is to offer students and alumni the opportunity to hear from a variety of graduates, from different professional backgrounds, living and working in different parts of the world. The series aims to inspire students about the different career paths available, as well as an insight into living and working in different countries. Each event will last up to 60 minutes with time for Q&A.
