Westminster Working Cultures launched in 2017, when a group of Westminster students travelled to Hong Kong and undertook a combination of job shadowing, seminars and workshops offered by Westminster alumni and partners.
Since then the programme has offered short-term mobility opportunities to global destinations and local programmes in the UK to hundreds of students, helping them to grow their confidence, learn about different professional environments and attend a range of networking events.
Hear from former participants, who are now working in a variety of industries, about their journey with WWC and how the programme has equipped them with the necessary experience to succeed in the competitive job market after graduation.
