    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • The departmental overviews provided a great overview of the different service lines and was made to be easily digested by non-cognate and cognate students, making it universal and interesting. They were well scheduled throughout the 2 week period and I really liked how they covered the presenting colleagues background and career progression to date as it really presented the variety of routes and options available both in the city and regional areas.
