External Organisation Visits

External organisation visits or Study Tours provide students with opportunities to familiarise themselves with the work of organisations relevant to their programme content and/or future career aspirations. In some cases they may represent potential future employers. Embedded external organisation visits can add a valuable additional dimension to classroom learning.

If you would be willing to host a student visit to your business premises and talk to the students about your work, please contact the Work-related Learning Opportunities Coordinator
