Prepare your students for the job market with Common Purpose
Many universities recognize the importance of giving students opportunities to develop skills outside of their academic curriculum. The most successful, employable graduates are the ones who can think, learn and adapt in ambiguous spaces and thrive in diverse cultures. That’s why we have designed a suite of co-curricular leadership programmes that take students out of their classroom and into their city to develop real-world leadership skills. We give them access to new networks, help them to understand what employers are really looking for, and prepare them to thrive in their careers.
On a Common Purpose programme, students learn to be leaders who can cross boundaries—at work and in society. Our extensive and diverse network means that we are able to give students a unique insight into different businesses and organizations such as Google, Transport for London, RBS, Comic Relief, and many more.
Whether you’re seeking to impact 50 students or 1,000 students over the academic year, we can create our three or four-day programmes at speed with the ability to scale. The result is a global network of students who are equipped to create change in the world around them - at university, in their cities and in their future careers.
Our programmes equip students with the skills they need to succeed in their careers. Find out how taking part in Frontrunner landed Junaid a job, and hear how a Head of Careers feels the programme benefits her students.

Our Study Abroad programme develops the global competencies and Cultural Intelligence that employers are looking for in their graduate recruits. More than just a campus swap, our programme takes up to 100 students at a time out of the UK for an intense leadership experience in a new city.
