AUB students and alumni will be able to take part in sessions on entrepreneurship, time management, and funding as part of AUB Advantage this month.

The free workshop events, which take place at AUB’s Wallisdown campus, will inspire, encourage and inform audiences across a wide range of self-employment and freelance business interests, including time management, start-ups and funding.

Speaking about the schedule of events, AUB Senior Employability Officer Alison Zorraquin said: “Our sessions with external providers are completely free to attend and offer students workshops designed to bolster and enhance their personal and professional skills across a variety of different areas.

“As you might expect, time management is of great importance to those that will need to place a premium on their time and resources. However, these skills are also very useful to those looking to go into creative and digital industries where workloads are diverse with varied deadlines and timescales.”
