What’s on offer
Visit us – Business Focus Day
Business Focus Days gave pupils an opportunity to visit our university and learn about higher education. These days aimed to raise pupils’ aspirations for further business related studies and find out about extra-curricular activities and student life in general. These days consisted of lectures, various interactive workshops, Q&A sessions with our student ambassadors and a Campus Tour. Business Focus Days were open to any year and available to book by individual arrangement.
Our competitions gave pupils the opportunity to work alongside our student ambassadors and improve their presentation, communication and team-building skills, enhance their knowledge of contemporary business practice and gain confidence in public speaking. Entrants competed for exciting prizes and runners up were awarded certificates.
