Welcome to all our final year students!
All Level 6 Humanities and Mass Communications students are invited to an afternoon of presentations and interactive workshops aimed at helping you to make the most of your final year of study.
The afternoon is a valuable opportunity to hear from a range of speakers and to participate in some interactive workshops, all designed to help you tackle the challenges and opportunities of the year ahead but also to think about what happens after you graduate.
Sessions will include:
- managing your final year – hear from some of our graduates
- how to develop and hone study skills specific to Level 6 such as planning, time management and writing dissertations/longer projects
- polishing your presentation skills
- how to recognise the value of the transferable skills that you have developed during your time as Mass Communication/Humanities students
Please join us for an informative, supportive and inspirational afternoon.
In order to help us plan for catering, please email Tim Stafford (email@example.com) giving your full name, if you would like to attend.
