  • Important information delivered during 3 year course is forgotten
  • Course would sharpen student’s professional skills and ensure they were in good shape when applying for jobs, interview skills and for the world of work
  • Also with the advent of the £9,000 fee, it is important to find ways to deliver ‘value for money’ and to leave a lasting impression that our students were well prepared for the next stage of their lives. A valuable and useful parting gift.
