What did King’s students think about our Focused Festivals in the autumn term? 

We gather student feedback on each one of our festivals, at the bottom of the KEATS landing page. We value and cherish student feedback as we want to continue learning about the best ways to bring virtual career learning to King’s students.

“The KEATS festivals were a centralised place for finding careers in the role I was specifically interested in. Also, these festivals increased my awareness. I now have a greater understanding of what possibilities are out there. This means I can feel more confidence in feeling there is a right match out there for more in terms of what I want from a career”
