It will not only play a part in helping to retain vital funding, but the vast range of exciting careers represented (BBC journalists, a Lawyer-Linguist in Luxembourg, an RAF pilot, a luxury yacht charter broker, a publisher, entrepreneurs, an officer currently on operations in Afghanistan, and even an interpreter for the Spanish-speaking Miss World 2011!) will help to inspire future students to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
