Here in Swansea we make sure that you gain as much experience as possible in a work environment to help you develop your soft skills and to put your studies into practice. So, involving our students past or present in the activities we do at the Academy is key to its success.
In partnership with the Students Union, the academy offers funding for clubs and societies to create and host events that engage students with employers and alumni. This has led to 39 student-led employability events ranging from launch events, specialist and guest speakers to advise students, networking conference, networking dinners, collaboration events, business pitching events, career advice events, visits to industry and skills development events. All these activities are owned by the students and these are the initiatives they want to be involved in to help support their career ambitions.
