Improve your employment prospects and develop transferable skills including budgeting, negotiating and influencing decisions.

About the scheme

Our library is launching a new scheme to give students a greater say in planning and allocating its resources. We would like to involve you in deciding what books to buy and how to improve the overall learning experience for students.
