15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: Students will work on real-life issues currently faced by employers that have been captured as a case study brief. Students will receive their own case-study brief, research the issue, identify potential solutions and make a set of recommendations for presentation to the employer in the form of: a) written report and, b) formal presentation to the employer. Students will gain an understanding of the real-life issues faced by organisations in their area of career interest, as well networking at the employers' day. Employers will gain an appreciation of how Sheffield students skills can directly benefit their business.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
