This can be done face-to-face with an advisor, while additional help is also available online.

During their time studying towards their degree, students are encouraged to get involved in a club or society in their spare time, to meet new friends, gain another skill and add something different to their CV. Students can also start their own to demonstrate their leadership skills.
