Enhancing Futures

Enhancing Futures

Enhancing Futures is a free programme of live, online sessions with an interactive element, open to our undergraduate students. The sessions aim to help students explore the world, grow their leadership skills and get noticed by employers. Most sessions are in a one- to two-hour ‘bite-sized’ format so students can quickly gain knowledge in the areas that are important to them.

Our 2021 Enhancing Futures programme runs from May until June and will feature around three sessions each week day. Students are able to book on to as many sessions as they like. Students can find out more and book onto Enhancing Futures activities for 2021.
