The Tech Industry Gold Student Experience

Tech Industry Gold courses are not just a degree. Students gain what they often call ‘the unfair advantage’ from the unique student experience. Not only is the content of the courses defined by employers of the Tech Industry Gold Employer Network, but they are also heavily involved in delivery.

Some of our Tech Industry Gold graduates from the Class of 2021 took the initiative to create a video (above) talking about their experiences and thanking those that gave them their opportunities.

Also, watch the video created by the Tech Allies Network on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Tech Industry Gold degrees.

Annual student/employer events and competitions bring together employers, course directors and Tech Industry Gold students from across the UK for a day focused on employability skills and career inspiration.
