There's no better way to prepare for work than to experience it first-hand. That’s why we put so much time and dedication into our Business Placements Scheme.

It's the perfect way to gain a clear advantage over the competition, building your experience and your confidence by putting theory into practice in a real live business environment.

Who can do a placement year?

Each of our full time degree courses are available as a sandwich course and we encourage every student to take their third year as a placement year (making the degree a four-year course in total).

New professional practice degrees: Our distinctive undergraduate professional practice degrees have been designed to enhance the prospects of students dedicated to fulfilling their maximum potential.

By choosing to take this route you will graduate as a highly employable, experienced professional with the competitive advantage of progressing from your work placement directly into your chosen career.

Undergraduate placement opportunities are advertised to our students any time between September and the following August.

Birmingham City Business School has a dedicated Placement Team which offers a professional and efficient service to both our students and employers. We can organise many aspects of the recruitment process from promoting the vacancy and arranging interviews to providing free facilities on campus for presentations.
