Placements at Edgbaston


Birmingham City Business School student Shauna spent a placement year in industry at Warwickshire County Cricket Club's Edgbaston Stadium. It was part of the third year of her Marketing, Advertising and PR degree course.


Sports Therapy student, Greg, spent the summer after his second year on placement with our partner, Warwickshire County Cricket Club. Working with professional cricket players and staff Greg shows us around the facilities where he worked and talks us through the type of activities he would be involved with on a day-to-day basis, as well as how this has supported his learning and practice.
