Beyond the classroom
Your student experience
We believe that it is important for you to make the most out of your student experience, both within academic and social contexts. Through WMG's programme of extra-curricular activities and dedicated support, you'll enhance your CV, develop academic skills, network with businesses and get to know your fellow students.
We provide extensive support to strengthen your academic and research skills through our Study, Professional, and Analytical Skills programme (SPA).
You will follow an in depth course on Moodle, the Universities Virtual Learning Platform dedicated to academic writing, critical thinking, analysing data, designing research methodology, and preparing you for professional life by teaching you how to market your skills to employers and training you in key skills that you can utilise in the workplace.
