The programme starts by detailing the opportunities for students to progress their higher education within boomsatsuma’s programme of courses for 2020/2021. This includes the degree level courses available for this September 2020 admission, as well as previewing six new degrees being launched for September 2021 admission.

Across the four days, students select webinar panels matching their interest and hear from successful professionals in their fields. They will be able to engage in questioning the panellists, who are ready to help them with their career development and give insights as to how to gain entry into their sectors. boomsatsuma’s strong ties with the creative industry has helped them draw industry professionals who have worked/are working with the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Disney. There are also professional journalists, photographers, animators and independent production companies making up the impressive speaker roster.

boomsatsuma director Mark Curtis states:

“Futures Week is part of our ongoing commitment in supporting students to make the right choice for their futures. Lockdown has forced us to adapt and make this an online webinar format, which will certainly still give our students access to brilliant speakers.

“The information and personal feedback will give them valuable guidance towards making informed decisions about whether they choose to stay on in higher education or beginning their career journeys.”
