Developing employability skills is a key priority for the University. SMSAS is committed to helping students gain a wide range of vocational skills and knowledge. As part of this process, we run a series of seminars and workshops during the first half of the Autumn Term.
- The workshops are intended for all final-year SMSAS students (Stage 3, P.Dip, MSc).
