Fragomen launches immigration programme for Scottish students
Global immigration firm Fragomen is offering senior school pupils, university students and graduates in Scotland an opportunity to find out more about prospective careers in the world of immigration.
Applications to join the school – a free of charge online programme featuring speakers from law, politics, economics, media and other key sectors – have now opened.
Fragomen, which has more than 4,500 staff offering specialist immigration support across 170 countries, said the series of evening sessions will provide a new avenue of learning at a time when Covid-19 restrictions have seriously constrained the study environment.
The five two-hour sessions will be staged during October and November this year.
Edinburgh-based Fragomen solicitor Kelly Hardman said: “We want to help students learn about the different facets of immigration.
“The immigration sector presents a multitude of career opportunities, and the school provides a platform for leading professionals to share their experience and knowledge.”
She added: “Attendees will be able to list their participation on their CV, not only highlighting specialist knowledge but also demonstrating intellectual curiosity – potentially significant differentiators.
“We believe the timing of this initiative will help reinvigorate the learning environment. The pandemic constraints have undermined classroom and lecture-based learning, as well as work experience opportunities. We hope our school goes some way toward remedying that knowledge gap in the specialist area of immigration.”
The deadline for applying for Fragomen’s UK Immigration School is Tuesday, September 28 (2021). For further information and to apply, click here.
