Professional Liaison Network

The Professional Liaison Network (PLN) co-ordinates a range of activities that connect students, academics and researchers from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law with external organisations.

Our programme is designed to enrich students’ academic studies and enable experiences that will help them to thrive after graduation. We support collaboration between organisations and the University, developing lasting, mutually beneficial partnerships that create impact.
