Springboard is a personal development programme specifically tailored and developed for female (including those who identify as female) students (undergraduates, masters and DPhils).

If you would like to:

            • Become more assertive

            • Work out what is important to you for your future success

            • Live your life in tune with your values and beliefs

            • Have confidence in demonstrating your current abilities and future potential


Then please consider attending this award winning course!  

The course runs over two days in 9th Week (March 11th and 12th, 2019), from approximately 8.45 - 5.30 each day at the University Careers Service and is run by a small team of our friendly Careers Advisers.  Over the two days you will be able to explore topics such as your core values, dealing with feelings, effective networking, using assertiveness positively, and goal setting. The course is free and includes the work book and all refreshments including lunch.

You will also hear from inspirational women who have faced these similar challenges in their everyday life and work.
