- Advertising or publicising recruitment opportunities to students and/or alumni in newsletters, social media, university websites or physical materials.
- Work experience, placements, and/or volunteering opportunities.

If this policy forms a part of a wider policy document, please specify which page we need to refer to in order to locate this information.

3). If your university does not have an active policy in place, please can you confirm whether there are any exclusions in place regarding which companies your university does and does not allow access to ‘student talent’.
