When you start your course we offer you the opportunity to get to know your fellow students better at a team-working residential session at Brathay in the stunning Lake District National Park. The session is packed full of fun activities that help you to become an effective team member - a key skill that employers look for when recruiting.

“Brathay was definitely one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It is an opportunity to get to know your classmates and meet new people. It dares you to be your best and to challenge yourself and your inner fear. It also places a lot of emphasis on trust among your classmates because later on you will have to do your coursework projects together.”

As an international student, you can access a range of specialist careers support.

“The faculty have been great and the students and classmates have all been extremely helpful. But I would say it is the Postgraduate Careers Service team and their guidance, along with the reputation of the University, that has enabled me to tick off nearly all my goals from the beginning of this year.”
