These skills are welcomed by employers and students alike as they ensure you make the most of both your study time and your professional experience.
Our Professional Readiness programme equips you with the skills to enable you to undertake a professional internship option with confidence and prepares you for the real world of work. Where possible professional internships are paid and, although these internships are very competitive, our Business and Professional Experience team will work with you every step of the way. Alternative professional activities are available for students, including modules such as Professional Practice and Ethics; Mediation; and Dealing with and Managing Change. There is also the option to spend an additional year studying abroad at one of Kingston University's partner institutions located all over the world.
