Career Booster

About the Career Booster programme

Give yourself the best opportunity of securing the perfect job and complete our unique Career Booster Programme.

Our Career Booster Programme is a distinctive and uniquely valuable resource available to all students in the Faculty of Management, Law & Social Sciences.

The skills-based content in Career Booster is targeted directly to the evolving needs of employers with the aim of responding to a national skills gap which employers are seeking in their graduates.

The Programme consists of two, week-long sessions consisting of more than 60 workshops, masterclasses, webinars, presentations, lectures and panel sessions which are all free for faculty students.  

The sessions will be delivered by sector experts, our industry partners, guest speakers and alumni. The programme covers so much from Bitcoin, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies to hands on experience of Psychometric Tests. Career Booster is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ opportunity to get ahead.

Think Ahead, Get Ready, Graduate!
