What's it like to be a University student in 2019? Now you can find out! Listen to the brand new GRB monthly podcast - Student Diaries. Designed for recruiters, this is your chance to better understand student behaviour in 2019.

                                              Student life can change so much within a short space of time. As most of us are busy stuck behind a desk how do we really know what it's like to be a University student in 2019? Well, I set about finding out and learnt lots in the process. The tasks they juggle, the deadlines they need to meet, the pressure to earn money alongside studies, the skills they are building and the challenges they face all prepare them for the workplace in more ways than you'd expect. Each month during term time I wil be interviewing three Sussex University students - Sarah in year one, Tor in year two and Ella in her final year. Produced in 10 minute interviews for each student, Student Diaries will give you a bitesize portion of insight every month to help your understanding of student life and perhaps encourage you to find out more and even shape your plans to attract them down the line.  Click here to listen to Student Diaries on iTunesClick here to listen to Student Diaries on SoundCloud
