The Harper Adams Scholarship Fair has returned with an in-person event – and yesterday say a wide variety of organisations taking part!
With the Scholarship programme at the University now in its 17th year, the Fair, which also saw several organisations join with a virtual online presence, provided a chance for students to find out more about possible careers, potential employers – and some of the many Scholarships which are on offer through the University’s Development Trust and its industry partners.
In total, 42 different organisations took part this year, offering a wealth of advice, support and interest to participating students.
Head of Development Doris Taylor said: “The Fair was the biggest and best we have had so far – with something for everyone!”
The day certainly proved a hit on social media – as you can see via this roundup of some of the many posts about it.
Welcome all! Great to finally have this event "live" again. Students, please visit the scholarship and see what opportunities await you! #degreesthatmatter #careers #industrypartnerships https://t.co/MAx7sthDbx— Harper Adams University (@HarperAdamsUni) October 20, 2022
