Faculty Case Studies

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.

The Public Relations course at Leeds Metropolitan is renowned in the industry for being the best in Europe.
