Our Student Experience Days are educational insight days for female undergraduates who are interested in careers within the Built Environment, to encourage and promote many different routes into the industry. We do not require any subject background, or year of study, as it is never too late, or early, to start your career in the sector. 


Currently held at Barratt London Aldgate offices, the day includes:

Industry and business insight sessions

Specialist skills workshops with external experts (previous topics: Archaelogy, Acoustics, Construction Law)

Careers and applications workshop, with Assessment Centre practice

Site visits to flagship Barratt London sites

INSPIRE//NETWORK social evening to meet professionals from the industry


We are keen to encourage more schools, colleges and universities to get in touch for future events!

The next event will be in March 2017, so please contact us if you would like to join, or know someone that would.

"It was a really amazing experience and I am most grateful for the fact that the information I got from the whole day has helped me with what to do after graduating."

1st Year Student, De Montfort

"The networking event was very good, it topped the whole night off. I was nice to meet new people and talk to people in the industry, it helped a lot and it was inspiring."

3rd year student, Kent

I was a bit apprehensive studying Politics and knowing there are so many gaps in my knowledge. I learnt so much and was made to feel like a part of it all which was lovely. I've been to networking events before but this was by far the best!  I made some amazing connections & got some excellent advice for the future as well!

"It was great to meet so many inspirational people and to feel like, as female engineering students, we have a huge amount of support behind us for our future. It definitely has given me a huge amount of motivation and drive in pursuing a career in this industry."
