We're transforming higher education. As a FTSE 100 company, immersed in industry, we do things differently. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do, and it’s what sets us apart. We offer all full-time degree students guaranteed internships*, so they gain experience during their studies. Our degree apprentices also get to work within a company throughout their studies, so they gain valuable experience, learning on the job. We help our students to build their own professional networks; they’re taught by well-connected industry experts, and they get to make contacts at industry workshops led by some of the world’s most reputable organisations. We work with industry giants from Unilever, L’Oreal, and Sony Pictures, to WPP, Lloyds of London and IBM. Alongside their academic studies, it’s the experiences like these that help our students to develop the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed, as well as inspire them, so they have the drive and ambition to get ahead. Our students are enterprising and entrepreneurial. They get to work with our in-house business incubator The Access Platform (TAP), and many have set up their own companies too, like Kickpush and Yaantu and even social enterprises like Once Upon a Doug. Our alumni have gone on to work for brands such as Nestle, Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Dyson, Not on the High Street, the BBC, Wincanton and General Mills. Industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future.
