There is a very broad range of Add+vantage subject areas, and they are arranged in themes. In the 'Global Languages' theme you can learn French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese or Portuguese. In the 'Global Perspectives’ theme you can study how to do business in different parts of the world or look at intercultural communication in the global society. In the ‘Professional Development’ theme, modules have been created in association with IBM, Jaguar Land Rover, Enterprise-Rent-A-Car and Severn Trent Water to give students unique industry insight and guidance for graduate recruitment. Other themes include Enterprise and Entrepreneurship; Work Experience, Global Experience Field Trips, Projects and Skills; Professional Accreditation and Research Skills.
The common thread is that they all develop and expand the skills employers are looking for, and which enhance your CV. They also facilitate the transition from university to work. If you want to impress a future employer by your business expertise you can study how organisations work, take a module in project management, or improve your leadership skills.
One Add+vantage module is taken in each year of study and the modules are credit bearing (10 credits) and a mandatory part of most undergraduate degree courses. Where mandatory, the Add+vantage modules must be passed in order to be eligible for an honours degree. Degree courses exempt from the Add+vantage Scheme are Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Nursing (all branches), Midwifery, Dietetics, Paramedic Science, Operating Department Practice, Social Work, Youth Work, Accountancy, Accounting and Finance, Finance and Investment, Law, International Law, Business Law and Engineering.
The Careers and Add+vantage team is located in the careers zone on the first floor of TheHub in Jordan Well. Apart from Wednesday mornings, we are open from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday throughout the year.
