Development Function

What is the Development Function.

The Student Development team focus on the Development Function, which is one of the 3 charitable aims for UPSU along with representation and welfare, as well as working with UPSU Groups. As part of this new Student Development team the strategic aims are now a focus on development as part of the overall quality student experience package students should receive at university.

We are here to help you build the skills and experiences to help you with your next steps, whatever they may be.

We'll work with you to identify the skills you already have, and what you need to develop further, compared to what employers say they need.

We put on events and opportunities throughout the year that will help you, as well as providing a great opportunity to network, socialise, & get to know your local community!If you want to speak to someone on the team, please contact (Senior Student Development Function Manager) or (Student Development Specialist) to find out more.
