Placement videos

We spoke to some of our students about their placements.


Ben, Rosie and Laura talk about their experiences  

Our students talk about how the workplace experiences they had on their placements bettered their academic work and future career prospects, whilst our placement hosts expand on how having SMI student interns helped further their data analysis and studies.
