Largest Millfield Careers Fair welcomes local Somerset schools

2019 saw Millfield welcome its largest number of universities, employers and visitors to its annual Careers Fair with exhibitor numbers doubling over the last 4 years. Forty-one exhibitors joined this year’s event.

For the first time Millfield invited local schools to join the event, including St Dunstan’s School in Glastonbury, who welcomed the opportunity for pupils to gain insights and fuel their enthusiasm for higher education.

The day was rounded off with a newly launched university admissions panel session which gave Lower Sixth pupils the chance to put their own questions to the panel. Representatives from Exeter, Cardiff Met, Dundee and Goldsmiths universities took questions from pupils covering topics such as guidance around academic support from course tutors, the importance of the personal statement, the value of the EPQ and work experience.
