Industry Connections


Our Industry Connections events aims to bridge the gap between university and industry by providing students with an opportunity to form valuable industry connections through a virtual networking evening. The events consist of two 20 minute speed networking sessions, where two to three students and one professional are grouped together based on area of interest for the first round and randomised for the second. Practice managers, experienced professionals and industry seniors are invited to these events to encourage student-industry engagement and build meaningful professional connections.
