What students say

Thank you so so much for creating this amazing, efficient programme! The modules are so clear, and the activities were so fun to do, it was great. I appreciate this opportunity so much, and thank you so much for being able to introduce us to professionals in each module career field, it really really helped me in terms of what specific careers I am considering. I'm even now considering doing a degree apprenticeship instead of university, which I never thought I would consider until this programme. Thank you for giving me so much more insight into technology, I feel much more secure in my knowledge in the field and what the specific careers entail.

Thank you so much for putting this together. I came to the program slightly unsure as I thought it could be a bit of a waste of time and nothing like in person work experience. You have completely proved me wrong. Whilst it is not exactly like in person work experience, it has given me a much wider overview and I have learnt a lot. The activities were great as it made it more interactive and they were explained well so you felt like you knew what you were doing. Any problems, you wouldn't have to wait long for a reply. And getting a certificate out of it is brilliant because it makes you feel like you have something that you can put on your cv, especially if you don't get the chance to do in person work experience before uni or an apprenticeship. Thank you for all your work in producing this for us.

I would like to say, THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to speak in your field. It has brought great insight and allowed me to only love this field so much more. As geeky as I will be called, I love how passionate you seem about technology and the opportunities that it holds from data science to engineering to even just web designing, it is really cool to see.
