“The careers department were very useful. They help you build a network but also provide you with the knowledge to grow and care for the network/partnerships you have. In addition, you’re helped through the next stage of going through interviews with advice gained from years of industry experience.

The confidence I came out with at the end of my experience at UCA is a big change. To be confident about your work in relation to standards in the industry as a fresh graduate is a great thing.”
