      You said - we did

      Student feedback indicated...

      ...you would like more contact with alumni.  
      We now run alumni networking events for students to meet alumni working in a range of sectors.

      ...many students would like to see a wider range of organisations at our Careers Information Fairs, including more organisations recruiting non-clinicians.
      We have opened our careers fairs to a wider range of employers, and almost 50% of organisations at recent fairs were recruiting for roles other than clinical roles. Full details of the organisations that attended are available on the events page.

      ...you would like more information about employers both in this country and overseas.  
      We recruited four student ambassadors to conduct informational interviews with representatives of organisations in this country and overseas.  Their reports can be found in the 'Employer Information' folder in the Career and study options section.
