How our students get involved:

Students are made aware of upcoming sessions in a number of ways: Canvas (a virtual learning environment), in the dedicated LinkedIn group, via Instagram and Handshake (a dedicated employment platform). 

Students register for sessoins so they can log engagement with HEAR, the Higher Education Achievement Record. This is a formal degree transcript that provides a full record of university achievements, including both academic and extra-curricular learning and experience.


Student feedback

"It was really useful to see how our classroom learning is applied in a real-life context, in addition to learning how not everything goes to plan, not everything is a 'textbook' answer and that we must be ready for change / ready to adapt / ready to challenge the status quo - this is stressed in our lectures but it was useful to have this reinforced by someone working in the field."

"The real world scenarios not only made the session more engaging and memorable, but it helped me to understand how crucial strategic marketing is for a business."

"My experience joining the ULMS extra sessions has been very beneficial and I have gained a lot of information about different companies which I would not have if I hadn’t attended."

"I participated in a range of events hosted last semester. There were some great sessions and opportunities to connect with employees from a number of companies, enhancing my commercial awareness. It was also inspiring to hear previous graduates’ stories regarding their employment journey and experience. Overall, these sessions were helpful and I would definitely recommend other students to get involved."
