PLN Celebration Event

Join us on Wednesday 10 April 2024 to celebrate our unique student, academic and partner collaborations.

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 (including the Business School), with external organisations. We work with external partners from business and industry, government and the third sector.

This special showcase will explore the impact of student projects, placements and mentoring experiences with external organisations.
