This means you get internships, job placements and high level practical experience during your studies.

Our parents (and those in our relationship network) swap their sons or daughters into each other’s companies for work placements, internships and jobs upon graduation. This means our students get high level experience throughout their degree studies, as they are mentored by the owner of the companies. Have a look at the video below to see Oliver’s experience of his "Parent Swap Scheme".
