Working to learn and learning to work

We offer education powered by industry experience, with all of our degree programmes being designed, developed and delivered in partnership with industry. This constant exposure to industry means that our students gain the perfect balance between academic theory and practice, complemented by our Talent Development programme, to boost employability skills and help our students really shine in the workplace.

We champion entrepreneurship and were awarded the Small Business Charter in 2022 for recognition of our engagement with SMEs and supporting start-ups. Our current students get to work with our Startups in Residence and our graduates have started their own small businesses, including Kickpush, Jem's Bar, Build & Breathe Pilates and The List. Immersed in industry from day one, our students learn from successful companies and inspirational industry figures, as well as leading academics. It’s our combination of employer and academic perspectives that make our graduates unique.

Industry partners

We work with big global companies, SMEs, studios and start-ups. We’ve developed close relationships with an impressive range of industry partners and advisors, and they’re involved in everything we do. We welcome speakers on to our campus for face-to-face events as well as webinars and external visits. Over the years we have worked with industry partners including Pearson, LVMH, L'Oréal, Tesco, IBM, Enterprise Car Rental, Salesforce, AdamStart and Unilever.

Our alumni have gone on to work for companies such as Nestlé, Sainsbury’s, Dyson, Snapchat, Microsoft and the BBC and we welcome our graduates back to campus to inspire our current students and share their career journey.

We can help your company and staff connect with a vibrant and talented pool of students. If you’d like to collaborate, please contact Blayne Cooper, Head of Talent Development.
