UofG Alumni - Bust the myths: technology careers with an arts degree, 1300 - 1400

"We know what we are but know not what we may be." (Hamlet)

Thinking about your future might provoke similar thoughts - you know your interests and strengths but maybe not how this all fits into a future career.

Steven Osprey, Microsoft Solutions Director at TSG, felt the same. He studied two years of a computing science degree but realised his passion was in fact English Literature. Steven went on to graduate from UofG in 2006 with an MA (Hons) English Literature.

Find out in our Q&A with Steven how he discovered his English Literature degree was a perfect match for a career in the technology sector. Naturally curious and excellent with words, he found tech wasn’t just for techies.

This event will take place on REMO.

Register to take part! Further details will be emailed to you 1 day before the event.
