Our degrees are designed to make you globally employable, and a lot of what you can do alongside your course is all about giving you a competitive advantage.
Placements and part-time jobs are great ways of gaining practical skills, and there’s a lot you can do at uni to develop the ‘soft’ skills employers are increasingly looking for too. You can access funding to study or work abroad to understand other cultures and develop your resilience and problem-solving skills, or perhaps join a sports team, academic society or a club (or form your own!) to develop your teamwork and leadership skills. There are lots of ways of making your interests and hobbies help you to stand out from other graduates, while really enriching your time as a student.
