The School offers a range of different support services. Having access to careers advisors and regular contact time with tutors is useful, and something I would suggest everyone tries to make the most of as early as possible. The use of innovative software in teaching, such as Menti (an interactive polling tool where you can set questions and gather audience response through connected devices) allows students to interact during classes. Having industry professionals come in to give lectures is enjoyable too, engaging with experts in the industry is something that a lot of courses don’t get to do.
