1:1 Career Coaching
Professional development workshops
The Career Insights programme has been great. I’ve been interacting with so many different people from different cultures and different countries, and it’s been fun to learn new things about business management that I didn’t know earlier. We’ve learned about different things in business like cryptocurrency, marketing, marketing strategies and advertising. We completed our own project about brand management which has been really interesting. In our project, we created our own brand and own product along with an advertising campaign to sell it to consumers.
Throughout the programme, I’ve noticed myself developing and changing into a more confident individual who has more clarity of his future. It gives you more clarity on how to present projects in front of educators, and it gives you an edge over the rest.
The Immerse programme has been absolutely brilliant because of all the things I’ve learned in only two weeks. The time went by really quickly! I’ve decided I want to continue to study business management down the line, and the Immerse programme has been really helpful for me to build my understanding of the topic and teach me about aspects of business management I didn’t know before.
I feel I’ve learned a lot at a really high level because the tutors actually teach at Oxford and Cambridge, so they really know what it’s like to be a student here and they understand what we should know in order to attend university here.
