INDUSTRY PLACEMENT COORDINATORS
Students meet the Industry Placement Co-ordinator for their area at the start of the academic year and will see them regularly in tutorial groups or 1-2-1s thereafter to discuss opportunities and support students to secure their industry placement with employers.
We work with a wide range of local and national employers to make sure you get the best opportunities. As part of your course, you will hear from guest speakers about career opportunities, the latest technologies and how they got into the industry. Speak to your Industry Placement Co-ordinator for support in finding a placement.
