You will gain a commercial perspective of your area of study and this puts you in a strong position when it comes to finding work. Many of our students build strong relationships with the companies they work with during their placement and often return to work with them following graduation. It's a great opportunity to gain contacts and experience which will help set you apart and build a strong career.
