The past couple of weeks have been packed full of guest lectures and hands on sessions for students eager to learn about Qlik Sense and the Academic Program!

Last Thursday we ran a session for students studying Digital Marketing at the University of Sheffield. We had around 80 students using Qlik Sense and building their first application. The session was lead by Qlik Technical Trainer - Wolfgang Kellner with support from Curriculum Developer - Sara Del Pino.  This is a session we run with the students every year and we had some great feedback and interesting follow up questions, both about software functionality and the future of analytics and AI.

On Friday I spoke to a class taught by one of our Educator Ambassadors, Nassir Ibrahim, at Birmingham City University. These students are Final Year BSc Business Information Technology students, and during their course they must complete an assignment within Qlik Sense to solve a real world business problem. Students on this course always excel at engaging with Qlik and building amazing applications, we have even had one of Nassirs's students present on an EMEA webinar earlier on this year.

This week we kicked off the first of two sessions for Birmingham City University's  Grad+ programme. Graduate+ is an award framework designed to give students the opportunity to gain additional skills outside of their courses to help them secure employment after university. This is a partnership that launched in 2019 and is still going strong today. Students can earn 3 different award levels based on various courses they can take as part of the Qlik Academic Program. Every year we present Qlik and the Academic Program to students eager to learn how to differentiate themselves and upskill.

In the coming weeks we have even more sessions, if you're interested in having us speak to your students get in touch! and if you'd like more information about the Qlik Academic Programme, visit out website: Qlik.com/academicprogram
