Many of our placement students have had the opportunity to go on business trips, work with senior managers and directors, and take responsibility for their own projects.

We have also had a small number of students run their own company instead of participating in a traditional placement. These students are given business advice by academic staff from our Centre for Entrepreneurship and assigned to an industry mentor.
