Making the most of every opportunity

What is Student Opportunity?

Student Opportunity enables you to develop a global perspective, become culturally aware, and have confidence to achieve your full potential and vision of career success.

We work across the University to develop your employability through our Employability Strategy and enhance your international experiences.

Our student-facing teams are set out below.
