What our Students say!
“I chose to complete the add-on year to enhance my employability post-graduation as many employers now request Level 8 qualifications as a prerequisite for consideration. I had a lot of flexibility due to the variety of modules available and this enabled me to tailor the course to meet my needs and interests. Group-oriented assignments were an integral part of this course, offering students the opportunity to work with people from other cultures and backgrounds. In an ever changing business landscape it is important that real time experience is also discussed and the lecturers often invited guest speakers along which helped to further your understanding of the topics taught in class. In addition, the lecturers were always available for advice and guidance on my future plans regarding employment and post-graduation options.”
