Stand Out in a Global Market

Stand Out in a Global Market will be touring the country once again this autumn! Organised in collaboration between Euroguidance and Eurodesk, the events will inspire young people to kick-start their careers by gaining experience abroad.

The free one-day events are open to all young people aged 16-18 and are being held in Birmingham and Leeds:

23rd October mac birmingham

14th November St George’s Centre, Leeds

With Brexit on the horizon, we will explore the international opportunities available to students post-2019 and demonstrate how experiences gained abroad will be of benefit to their future careers. We will also identify professions where Brexit will increase demand and highlight skills gaps that will need to be filled after the transition period is complete.

Both Euroguidance and Eurodesk have acted as national centres for international careers guidance and support for young people for over 25 years. Therefore, attendees will have the chance to gain valuable advice and information on which global path may be right for them.

Talks and workshops take place alongside an exhibition, with topics to be covered ranging from how to make the most of international experience at home and abroad, to gap year options and applying to universities abroad.

How to Register

Places at each event are limited. Therefore, early registration is essential. To register your school, email

All registered schools are guaranteed places for 10 students (+ 1 staff place). If you wish to bring more students, please email us to discuss your requirements. Please note, whilst we believe that the event is as interesting for staff as it is for students, we are also happy for young people to attend unaccompanied.
