Dedicated careers support

The online learning platform at Exeter is great. The platform lays out all the information simply and I find it useful that each week structures the learning into bitesize chunks.

At the end of each week, there is also a learning summary section. I have found that beneficial to look back to and see what key points were covered that I can use for my assignment
