China Fair 2019

Date: 01 March 2019
Time: 08:00

Booking and Further Information

The China Fair is taking place on Friday 1st March 2019 at The University of Manchester.

The Fair is aimed at Chinese students looking to return to China after their studies to work. Students from just 8 UK Universities, including the University of Leeds, have been invited to this event, so it is a great opportunity to meet employers and find a job for when you finish your programme. The Fair is predominantly aimed at final year and postgraduate students.

All of the employers attending the Fair will be looking to recruit students to work in China. As well as employer stands, there will be employer presentations throughout the day, talks and networking opportunities. 

A sample of the employers attending the fair include: CPA Australia, Hisense, Hilti, NU SKIN, Geely, Decathlon, KPMG China, Hays, Merck, FDM Group, Dealmoon, Farleys Solicitors LLP, Astra Zeneca, Tong Digital, Mthree Consulting, the British Council China and many more which will be visible on the new China Fair app, courtesy of the University of Warwick.

There are 150 places available for Business School parented students and bookings will be taken via MyCareer on a first-come first-served basis. The Business School have arranged three coaches to take you to the Fair and back to Leeds this year. The event is paid for by the Business School, but you will need to buy lunch on the day. If you are successful in confirming a place at the China Fair, instructions regarding travel and timings will be emailed to you on Friday 22nd February.

Due to demand, it is very important that if you sign up for the event, you are confirming that you can attend.  Only those who are allocated a slot can attend.
