Professional and Community Engagement



Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) studies is an ideal complement to your degree. Training in this area will help you to develop key transferrable skills such as communication, problem-solving, organisational, and interpersonal skills. These will be honed through relevant work experience, projects, and internships.

Working jointly on projects with businesses and community organisations, PACE students learn to provide productive outcomes, develop strategies, and enhance their communication skills, and while increasing their employability in the process.
