Sujit speaks about the unique blend of education and industry at WMG.

WMG is different because we are an education partnership with industry offering a practical applications orientated approach.

Industry experience is of paramount importance for all of our lecturers. We work with companies in terms of creating innovative collaborations and solutions.

When I would talk to companies, I would tell them that the hallmark of our education offerings are that they are totally flexible, there is nothing fixed about them, and I would give them examples.

For instance, there is no fixed start date. You can start any time of the year. It is not as if you are going to have to start on October 1st. There is no fixed size of cohort. It is not that you have to have a class of 30.

It depends on the company as to how many people you think. You do not have to do a degree.

You see, okay. We have other University of Warwick qualifications, Master’s level qualifications, like the award, the certificate or diploma. So that for a company that is very useful because a degree is a big undertaking.
