Ways to build your experience

Develop skills beyond what you’re learning on your course to build your experience, broaden your outlook and strengthen your applications 

Fitting extra activities around your postgraduate study won’t always be easy especially if you have a demanding workload or other commitments. The benefits it brings, however, will make it worth your while – and you’ll probably enjoy doing it, too. 

Here are some activities to consider which will build your experience.
