BA geography with placement year – Buildings and Construction
First name: Euan
University: University of Manchester
Category: Buildings & construction
Short introduction: I realised when going into the second year that unless I did something, I would be coming out of my 3 ear degree with little to no work experience. That is why I applied to sign up to do a placement year in my 3rd year. I feel this is a great opportunity to expand my CV, gain some valuable work experience and make some useful work connections. I am mainly focused on finding a placement that is going to ensure I am contributing to society in a positive way by helping others.
