University Centre Leeds students on Whatuni say:
"We have amazing opportunities to get involved with a lot of industry work. Our teachers always want us to take part in these opportunities and they are there to help all the way through."
“Aspects of the course throughout all the years required me to go out and work with real people or get work experience. If any student fails to find any of these, the tutors never fail to aid in the search for such opportunities.”
"All students get regular emails of work experience opportunities as well as the opportunity to gain additional coaching qualifications away from the course, which as a result, will improve our knowledge and the chance of employability."
