This short self-quiz lets you explore what skills and competencies you can gain from your current whole university learning experience and how you can build on this.


Support for Travel and Subsistence Costs for Placements

LinkedIn Support

You can use this set of short videos to develop great ways of communicating to employers the skills and competencies you develop while at university. University offers many chances to learn through participation in co-curricular activities such as volunteering, placements and societies as well as your degree course studies. Employers value the blend of skills and competencies this produces so make sure you can convey what you have to offer.  The videos show how you can use LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional networking tool, to do this.
