A woman is speaking to another person in a fairly crowded room.

The UK’s largest LGBTQ+ student event returns this February as National Student Pride takes place in London.

The weekend of 10-12 February will be packed with panels, discussions, entertainment (in the form of a lip-sync battle with Drag Race UK legends Tayce and Danny Beard) and a recruitment fair where the most inclusive companies in the UK will be looking out for LGBTQ+ student talent. 

What is National Student Pride?

The event first took place in 2005 at Oxford Brookes University and has evolved into a national event that welcomes over 2000 attendees from all over the UK to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community during university life.

The annual recruitment fair is a wonderful opportunity for future graduates to connect with the UK’s most progressive employers, this year this includes PinkNews, so come say hello!

The UK’s biggest LGBTQ+ student recruitment fair is taking place on Saturday, 11 February at the University of Westminster’s Marylebone Campus – and even better, tickets are free
