  • Student work placement in all sectors
  • Providing short customised programmes
  • Doing research in partnership
  • Facilitating organisations who want students to work on projects or provide, ‘live classroom’, consultancy
  • Supporting start-up enterprises
  • Offering the expertise of our staff to companies and organisations
  • Facilitating input of our external partners in our curriculum, for example, in programme design, guest lecturing.
