Greenwich students are getting a helping hand into the events industry thanks to a new partnership between the university, We Are Brandnew and DNEL.
Students will be able to access one of two new fully funded scholarships and have the opportunity to work with We Are Brandnew high profile clients, including Coca-Cola and Global Radio.
Two of the university’s Marketing and Events students will also have the chance to secure full-time roles with the company upon graduation, giving them an entry into the industry.
The new three-year partnership was signed in May with the first scholarships/placements due to be offered in 2024.
The collaboration is part of the university’s goal to help make South-East London a more attractive place to live, work and study and will give students opportunities that will support both their personal and professional development.
