MDXAdvantage was an enjoyable experience that helped me build and develop my skills and put them into real world scenarios. It was a really fun programme to be a part of.” (2019-20 participant)

“It was awesome. At first I thought it was simply the typical employability sessions where CV's, cover letters and LinkedIns are checked but I definitely got more than what I signed up for because of all the activities that they set up to benefit us ” (2019-20 participant)
