Completion of Sponsored Degree with CGI watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, just thought I would write a quick post about my experience with the sponsored degree I have just completed.
    It was with a company called CGI who are a massive company and they paid for my degree in full and also have a starting salary of £14k which increases every year (providing you don't fail of course). I received a first class degree in Business Management and I know they also now offer an IT degree as well if that suits you more.
    I would definitely recommend completing a sponsored degree as you end up debt free, receive a nice salary and also gain valid work experience.

    Any questions, feel free to ask. Just thought it would be useful giving you a quick snapshot of how I found the degree

    hello, congratulations of your degree! i have a few questions. i was looking into this sponsored degree myself; is the degree you recieved foundation level? and also what do you mean by 'dont fail', are you referring to the uni course?
    how did you find the balance? where abouts do you stay whilst completing the degree?
    many thanks
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
