Attributes & Aspirations

Attributes & Aspirations is an interactive, practical, flexible online short course that supports you to decide on and plan for whatever you want your professional future to be. AA will be available from early September for all masters students in the Faculties of Engineering, Medicine and Natural Sciences to help you develop key skills that will help with your masters study and down the line. In AA you can choose which topics (from things like team working, decision making, problem solving and communication) you want to focus on and can complete them on a timeline that works for you!
