The Academic Enhancement Programme is designed to promote academic excellence through enhancement of key skills and supportive services for students at all levels of academic performance.

Students will have the opportunity to engage with different speakers who will generally be Heads of Departments or Professors with an excellent insight into their fields. The objective is to present students with a wide variety of information about the qualifications within a discipline, course detail and job prospects with which they can make informed decisions about their future.
