What you need to know about Postgrad Yorkshire 2015

Next stop for the TARGETpostgrad team is Sheffield for the Postgrad Yorkshire event. If you haven't been keeping track of our latest postgraduate events you can find all the details here.


Now, I thought it would be a good idea to provide you all with the essential details about the event itself. So, let me start with the basics...

FREE TO ATTEND! So bring as many friends as you like. 
DATE | 04 MARCH 2015
LOCATION |  THE OCTAGON CENTRE, SHEFFIELD
TIME | 11AM - 3PM

If postgraduate study is something that you're considering, knowing which course and university can benefit you the most, is important. That is one of the reasons we hold these fairs. We want to provide you all with the best knowledge of postgraduate study and offer guidance if you have not yet made a decision on whether you want to go into further education or get a job.

Here are our top tips if you choose to attend one of our fairs..

Do your research: Make sure you know which universities are attending, see what postgraduate courses they offer. 
Collect a guide: When you arrive on the day, pick up the free guide that we offer. This will not only tell you where each university is located, but also details of each seminar taking place. 
Keep an open mind: You may have your heart set on a particular university, but speak with different experts on the day to get a better understanding of each university and what they can offer you. 
Introduce yourself: Don't be shy about it, speak up about what course you’re looking for and get your questions ready. 
Be Assertive: Give a firm handshake and make eye contact. Have confidence in your ability to do your chosen course. 
Make Contacts: Whether this is with other students that are attending the fair, or with the postgraduate experts attending on the day. Ask for a business card to send over any questions you may have.
