While you study you will have many opportunities to connect with industry.

Our Industry Team works closely with your lecturers and Success Coaches to immerse industry into every element of your learning experience.

We work closely with your lecturers to bring industry guest speakers into your classrooms - even if you study online. This is to give you the opportunity to learn how current trends relate to the theory you study.

Our guest speakers are from highly successful organisations. They serve as great role models, and provide you with the chance to imagine yourself in similar positions in the not-so-distant future.

Getting an industry perspective on a subject is refreshing. It creates deeper understanding and relevance of how theoretical principles are applied in the real world.
