Global Experience Student of the Year

This award acknowledges the importance of our students who have taken the jump and gone global! As we now operate in a global economy the demand for students to demonstrate their global awareness has never been more important. As quoted by top international employer Price WaterHouse Cooper: “What global companies look for are people who can take a global perspective. If students have demonstrated they can work with other cultures and teams, that’s a big plus for us”.
