Malaysian students Drakehouse visit – 30/08/11


Henry Boot Construction’s Drakehouse Retail Park team played host to a group of Construction Management students from Malaysia last week, giving them a useful insight into construction in the UK.

The Sheffield Hallam University students are in the UK for the summer, undertaking a short course conversion degree to top up qualifications already gained in their home country.

The visit helped to reinforce the existing relationship between HBC and the Faculty of Development and Society, and gave the students a chance to chat with site staff and spend some time observing the work taking place.

"The students enjoyed the visit yesterday and thought it was informative - very different from what they have experienced in Malaysia. There is only so much we can teach them in the classroom, and it’s a great experience for the students to see the real site and learn from the professionals."

Bee Gan, Faculty of Development and Society, Sheffield Hallam University
