The Business Experience Team at the WBS Registry is arranging a Presentation networking session featuring current WBS students on a one-year placement who will be speaking about their role and company, how they obtained their placement, what to expect, how to prepare and lots of hints and tips on how to apply and where to apply.

This session is targeted to students in level 4 who want to know more about the placement year and how to register (you will go on placement Summer 2014-15) and also for current level 5 students who can go on Placement this summer for a year (2013-14). Come and learn more about your options to find a Placement, and listen to first-hand advice from your peers currently in placement.

All WBS students can choose to do a placement (except for BA International Business students, who must study abroad).

Registering your interest for a placement does not mean you must find one and there is no way back, we support you to find a placement, but if you don't find a placement, or change your mind, you just continue to the final year.

Venue: Cayley Lecture Theatre, Time: 1pm, Date: Wednesday 20th March 2013. Just turn up, no registration required!

Why go on a placement?

  • Build key transferable skills all employers want
  • Test drive a career
