Faculty Case Studies

Emma ListerBA (Hons) Public Relations & Communications, 2012

I knew how important it was from the word ‘go’ to graduate with experience as well as a degree. I did a sandwich course, spending one year on placement in the press office at Opera North. It was a fantastic opportunity and I learnt so much.

Phillipa HoldenBA (Hons) Marketing , 2011

I felt the placement year would be the best way to increase my employability and allow me to gain contacts in the industry.
