This interactive event was packed full of resources and advice to prepare students for their career in speech and language therapy.

The event offered students the chance to find out what speech and language therapy managers look for in job applicants; learn what it’s really like to be a newly-qualified practitioner; and much more.

The National Student Study Day gave delegates the opportunity to meet and network with other SLT students from across the UK, as well as learn more about the RCSLT and how we can support students and NQPs throughout their career
