Bringing the World to Liverpool series of events is back this November.

The exciting new series of online talks featuring University of Liverpool graduates who have taken their degrees across the world are back this month. Each event will be dedicated to a sector from finance to compute services, law and entrepreneurship.

The series will connect you with graduates who are living and working in different parts of the world, including the UK. They will be sharing their unique stories, as well as providing advice, tips, and knowledge they wish they had known at University or when setting out in their career.

The series includes graduates from a wide range of sectors with different professional backgrounds and levels of experience. Each event will last for 60 minutes and will include time to ask questions of the speakers. The events will also be recorded and shared afterwards with attendees.
