Potential Job Roles

"When I attended an Open Evening at the University Centre South Devon I was initially unsure which direction I wanted to take.  When I spoke to a tutor about my goals, strengths and weaknesses, they guided me to a degree in business and management and I never looked back."Charlotte McGowan
