The Professional Track

The Professional Track is an exciting professional development scheme. We offer a huge range of courses, placements and professional networking opportunities which provide you with skills and experiences.   'See the poster below for more details (to zoom in/out: hold Ctrl and press +/-)'.

The Professional Track will help you to build up your CV and skillset throughout your degree, allowing you to be fully ready for the world of work by the time you graduate.

You can complete the scheme at any point during your undergraduate or postgraduate course. You are welcome to "hop-on" and "hop-off" the track at any point. If you decide to do a course in the first term of Part 1, and then come back for a placement in your last term of Part 3, that's fine!

If you complete, however, you will receive an additional certificate that will run alongside your degree and list all the amazing things you've done. This opportunity is open to all students in the School of Literature and Languages (including non-owned joint honours students).
