Career Fairs

Have your say: What would you like future career fairs to be like?

Career Fairs are an important way of engaging students with employers. The career development centre and the SSH faculty employability team would like to revamp the existing Social Sciences and Humanities career fairs to ensure it is tailored well to your needs.

Please complete a very short questionnaire and we will use your response to shape future career fairs.

Psychology at the movies is  back on the 4th of February with “A Beautiful Mind” an Oscar winning film starring Russell Crowe as John Forbes Nash Jr., a troubled mathematical genius.

We have a few special events like the British Animation Awards: Public Choices, where you get to vote for your favourite animation from 3 programmes mixing short films and music videos. (26th January, 2nd February, 9th February)

A special Valentine’s Day event will take place with a Bonnie and Clyde inspired romantic robbery/comedy caper set in London: “Taking Stock”. The film recently won 4 awards at the Monaco International Film Festival, including the Independent Spirit Award. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast and crew including Kelly Brook and Scot Williams.

Two UoW student special screenings are also coming up, with BAFTA nominated documentary “He Named Me Malala” on the 25th January and “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” on the 15th February. £5 tickets with the University of Westminster student card.

The Rules of the Game -24th January

One of the greatest films ever made – and it’s a comedy! The only film to appear in the top 10 of every single one of Sight and Sound’s decennial polls.  A comedy of manners, with a biting satirical edge, it contrasts the romantic entanglements of rich and poor during a weekend at a country estate.

My Neighbours the Yamadas -30th January

Rarely screened Studio Ghibili film in quite a different style from their usual fare, the film follows the adventures of the wacky Yamada family through a series of pastel vignettes.

Sweet Smell of Success- 10th February

Widely considered a masterpiece, this is a scabrous take on New York from one of Britain’s finest directors. Powerful newspaper columnist J.J. Hunsecker uses his connections to ruin his sister’s relationship with a man he deems unworthy of her.

The Shining – 9th February

Stephen King isn’t a fan of this Kubrick adaptation, but that doesn’t stop it from being the finest horror film ever made. When a family agree to caretake a hotel for the winter, they don’t know what they’re letting themselves in for.

Blade Runner – 1st February

Needs to be seen on the big screen, with big sound. Perhaps Ridley Scott’s greatest achievement, thanks to an unforgettable script, soundtrack, performance and visual effects, it passes the test of time with grimy flying colours.

Room – 9th February

Harrowing and uplifting in equal measure this is a film you may only want to see once, but will hold in your heart. Told through the eyes of 5 year old Jack it reveals the life of a boy and his Ma who live in a single, squalid room.
