About This Course
Thinking about our future, and where we want to be is exciting. At times it can also be a bit daunting. We keep hearing about changes to our world and the impact technology is having on work in the future. This is not a distant future either – it’s 2020 at the earliest, and some actually believe the changes are already here!
So how do we prepare ourselves for a future, a career, a profession that is unknown? And how do we establish our own edge, or value proposition in an uncertain employment landscape?
Throughout our lives we make career decisions over and over again. It’s a process of continual evolution and refinement, adapting ourselves to our environment, and refining the best aspects of ourselves, our skills, strengths, abilities and personal style, to the opportunities that arise.
If you’ve decided that a university degree is the first step to creating a satisfying and successful career, the next challenge is working out how to get the most from the university experience. A degree is a big investment, of both time and money, so you want to ensure that it helps you to achieve your goals.
This course provides a fun and interactive opportunity to explore what you really want for your future. Then you’ll be in a great position to choose best the activities, clubs and opportunities from all that’s on offer at university.
No previous knowledge or skills are required for this course. Confidence in navigating the web would be an advantage.
