If you take a paid work placement in your third year you’ll develop and enhance your employability skills. Past students have completed placements with companies including Mercedes Benz, Price Waterhouse Cooper and high street retail banks.

We will encourage you to enhance your entrepreneurial skills through a range of national student competitions such as the IBM University Business Challenge.

Our guest lecture series will help support your development.
