Wigwam bash gets our students set for their future

21 Feb 2014

More than 3,000 find inspiration at MyFutureFest

Students enjoy MyFutureFest

More than 3,000 students were inspired and enthused about their future during MyFutureFest, a week-long programme of events designed and delivered by the Careers Service.

The festival’s focal point of the festival was a PapaKata teepee, installed next to University Place for three days, where students chatted with staff over free hot chocolate and cake, won prizes and enjoyed the atmosphere.

The innovative venue also showcased the many things our students can do to prepare for their futures, improve their skills and gain experience – from Volunteering to Sport, Student Societies to International Programmes, Mentoring to Student Media.

And there was a range of other activities and workshops across campus including an Internships Clinic in University Place, Drop-in Applications Advice on Sackville Campus and Speed Networking evenings in academic schools.

And according to the Tweets sent during the event, it was a great success:

“Awesome idea of organising an event in not one but two teepees”

“Well done @ManUniCareers for the fun #MyFutureFest – a few heads turned with the TeePee!”

“HAPPINESS defined! @ #MyFutureFest organised by @ManUniCareers. I appreciate my Careers Service’s efforts.”
