The university has organised a range of fantastic events and programmes open to students over the coming months!
This is an exciting Personal Development Programme for undergraduates, run over 3.5 days. The programme was developed to address the gender gap in starting salaries and pay and aims to help students develop confidence, assertiveness and networking skills and to evaluate their core values.
The programme also works with employers and gives the opportunity for students to network with senior professional women and receive career advice and tips, in addition to gaining a professional mentor over 2 months.
Applications are open now and close on 20th November 2016 (Sunday Week 7) - for more information, visit www.warwick.ac.uk/sprint.
