We are delighted to announce that applications for this VIRTUAL event with Grant Thornton and Charles Russell Speechlys is now open! It's a fantastic opportunity to pick up some incredible virtual experience with two global professional services firms. 

Did you know that most people who are considering a career in law could do exceptionally well in the tax department at a professional services firm such as Grant Thornton.

Learning about the tax laws and complexities business and individuals may have to go through can be very closely linked to what the legal tax teams do at international law firms.

This is your chance to hear from two of the biggest players in the legal and accounting industry at one event. You will get exposure to their different teams, people and jobs that you could apply for in the future.

Do you know someone who is considering applying to university soon? Many higher education providers have open days and UCAS has done the hard work and compiled a list so you can plan your visits!

Try to:

  • Attend at least one or two subject talks, sample lectures, taster sessions or department visits
  • Take a tour of the campus, accommodation and Student Union venues
  • Look around the town/city itself
  • Speak with current students - the course should be at the top of your list of things to find out about at an open day, so speak with those who are already studying there

Try to also give yourself some time to explore on your own. Bear in mind that a uni will be putting on its best face for you, so it's worthwhile to spend a bit of time just wandering around and absorbing the general atmosphere.
