Placements and industry links are as important now as ever before, in helping to prepare and improve future prospects. 

We fully understand the challenges currently facing many employers at the moment and appreciate all the support and contributions which can be offered to students, flexibility is open to working with hosts and adapting where possible to continue collaborations.

We would be delighted to connect and discuss opportunities throughout 2021/22.  See link here to access our placement brochure for more detail.
