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!
