“Our students are the global leaders of the future - this top notch Common Purpose programme helped them to realise this potential. Taking them into Boston to engage with leaders and their challenges gave them much stronger connections with the city and helped them to understand the local context. Being part of such a diverse group developed their leadership skills, networks, and ability to work with people from different cultures.”

This programme is made possible through the kind support of The Weir Group as our Corporate Partner.
