Brathay team-working residential


“The Brathay residential was a very rewarding experience. I was able to bond with my classmates and meet people that I may have otherwise not spoken to. The activities that took place at Brathay were challenging at times, but that’s what made it so great. I would highly recommend attending. The Lake District is also one of the most beautiful places in the UK!”

"My advice for all students is to spend considerable time thinking how their Masters studies complement their background, highlighting the synergies. The Postgraduate Careers Service provided me with valuable advice on how to bond all the pieces of my education and background into the concrete evidence required to successfully get my job. I highly recommend it to all students!"
