The students who attended are currently studying a course in advanced website development. The open day was created to help showcase to students nearing the end of their degree what it would be like working in a digital agency.
The students were taken on a grand tour of the drp 212 HQ, which led into several interactive sessions that were presented by the drpteam. The sessions were created to show how each team member have progressed within their role at drp and how to kickstart a career within a creative agency like drp.
