Following an extensive planning process, SU Talent Month is a culmination of events showcasing student talent from all USW campuses.
What is SU Talent Month?
After a successful launch last year, Talent month is back! The aim of the campaign is to encourage students to collaborate and network with students beyond their field of study. From live music and e-sports to entrepreneurial challenges and a creators fair; our six multi-campus events will be hosted by USW students from different backgrounds of study and campuses. This is a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with other students, meet people and share ideas.
What do we hope to achieve?
The SU is on a constant lookout for opportunities to encourage students to collaborate with other students across campuses and beyond their area of study and we think the best way to do this is through informal events! We want to provide students with multiple routes to gain employability skills in a real-world setting whilst having fun at the same time.
