What does psychology have to do with climate change? Why are politics, medicine and supply-chain management all equally important when it comes to the smooth running of the Olympic Games? And how can artificial intelligence improve agriculture for better food security? 

Growing evidence suggests that possessing knowledge and understanding across a range of different subjects is key when facing global challenges. Join our expert panel on 21 September from 10:00 to 11:00am as they tackle a host of different perspectives in a fun and informal way to address some of these issues. If you’re wondering which topics will be chosen... the Student Hub Live 'Wheel of Fortune’ will decide!

This workshop builds on our essay planning session (although attendance of that workshop is not a requirement) and will cover the drafting and editing process. It’s common to struggle to fit everything you want to say within a wordcount, or to feel unclear about the most effective ordering of information. We’ll outline key features of strong essays and help you think through how to weave your research into a great essay of your own.

Did you know that 86% of graduate employers are more interested in a potential employee’s qualities and skills than the subject they studied? Perhaps the COVID-19 pandemic is changing your plans for the future or you’d like to know what employers are saying about where things go from here. There are existing roles and ones yet to be created that could perfectly match your passions and talents… but how do you find out what they are? Get started, and broaden your horizons in this varied half-day programme. Students from all faculties, courses and qualifications are invited to join faculty guests and OU career consultants to investigate four themes: people-focused careers; innovation and entrepreneurship; how digital technology is transforming the world of work; and education sector roles. There will also be short, “in a nutshell” career-confident skills sessions covering CVs, assessment centres, interviews and tools to help plan your future.

Please note that this event is scheduled to start at 9:30am and will run until 12:30pm. Book a free ticket to attend on OpportunityHub.

Recordings of the sessions will be available shortly after this live event.
