Active Citizen Package

This package focuses on creativity, business, social enterprise and initiative through various projects and activities. Suggested attributes you will hone with this package include commercial awareness, leadership skills, creativity and ingenuity, all of which are increasingly desirable with employers and organisations. It can range from getting involved in media projects to setting up a small business, addressing entrepreneurial skills in its widest sense.
Global Graduate Package
In a global market place, international awareness is a key skill many employers value. Being internationally aware does not mean you have to travel and work abroad, although options are available if you choose to do this. Instead it can be about engaging with different cultures and expanding your knowledge while remaining in the UK. Activities for this package also include language taster classes, attending the Global Advantage Conference, befriending an international student, translating publications, studying, working or volunteering abroad and presenting at an international conference or event.
Developing Professional Package
This package enables you to participate in a range of activities from across the set packages above to develop a broad spectrum of experiences to reflect on. This package is ideal for those who want to experiment with a wide range of experiences or who are undecided about the direction of their career journey. It also enables you to develop a range of professional interests, work experiences and transferable skills by choosing relevant options from each package.
