Graduate Employability – The Next Step Forward
This event is to express gratitude to our industry who host and mentor students while on placement. It is also to recognise our graduating students as they depart the university to show our support for their lives beyond their undergraduate course, to connect them with the LTU Alumni Community and to ensure these new graduates leave with positivity and inspiration for their future career journey.
