GradEX - showcase your work to industry experts
GradEX is our annual showcase of final year students' work. It's an opportunity for students to exhibit their final year project to a wealth of industry professionals, and in previous years, some students have even come away with an offer of employment.
Students upload their work to the GradEX Portal, which includes links to students’ LinkedIn profiles, portfolios and CVs, and provides both students and employers with a platform to network and connect when they need to.
