HOW IT WORKS
Through CareerAhead, we will help you develop skills essential for professional working environments, such as communication, teamwork and time management. You will be guided to identify your strengths and to create a personal development plan which give you goals for you to take forward in your studies.

Our alumni have demonstrated their developed collaborative skills through setting up their own website, called Mama’s Cooking, as a part of their CareerAhead activities. Their business aim was to provide fellow international students with cooking tips and recipes as an aid for homesickness. This developed their entrepreneurial abilities, as well as allowing them to focus on building important leadership and team skills.

Building these invaluable skills will also take place inside the classroom. All our courses and modules are designed to expand your abilities and better your study skills. Working both individually on essays and in diverse groups to contribute to projects will allow you to take on many scenarios in working life and prepare you for your future career.
