Connecting with industry

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.

Industry in the classroom

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

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.

Industry events

Our Industry Consulting team regularly host industry events on every campus and via webinar, to connect industry with our students and our Alumni. 

You can find all events on the Careers Connect portal.

Work experience

Our Industry Consulting team also secure a broad range of opportunities for students, including industry placements, internships, part-time work, volunteering jobs, live briefs , projects and competitions .

These opportunities are showcased to students via the Careers Connect portal. Students are encouraged to meet with their Success Coach for Career Advice & Coaching, and to use the portal to build their professional profile & career skills, before applying for opportunities.
