Beyond the classroom
When it comes to your learning we want to take you far beyond the classroom. From getting involved in live projects and simulations, to field trips and insight sessions - there’s a lot to get you ready for the world of work.
Get valuable work experience and pay the bills with a paid internship. Internships will help you explore your options, grow your confidence and build on your skills.
Make a difference to the community and your CV through volunteering. We believe that you get more back when you give a little in return. For starters – you’ll get a fresh new perspective, CV-enhancing experience, confidence and new skills.
