Placement videos

You will benefit from the opportunity to spend a year working in industry between your second and third study year, allowing you to acquire invaluable, hands-on experience ahead of your career in business.

It is an excellent opportunity for you and your placement company. Your work experience allows you to develop a greater understanding of the business world, pick up key transferable skills, and put theory into practice, while your placement company can gain from your fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

Undertaking a year-long work placement means you get inside the business world, pick up key transferable skills, and put theory into practice.

Here, we look at the stories of Kennedy and Kieran, two Business and Management students who took placements at Premier Inn and Decathlon respectively.
