In a dynamic approach to bridging academia and industry, Wrexham University's Business Liaison Officer, Ian Rowley, talks about the university's unique placement programs. Designed for both local and international students, these programs offer transformative 12-week block placements and extended 12-month placements in disciplines ranging from business to hospitality.
Ian highlights the university's commitment to delivering meaningful experiences by tailoring projects to address real business challenges. The flexibility of remote projects ensures participation from companies unable to accommodate students on-site. With placement opportunities twice a year, Wrexham University invites businesses of all sizes and industries to collaborate, from the food and industrial sectors to one-person enterprises.
For international students, these placements provide invaluable exposure to UK-based businesses, fostering a cross-cultural exchange of experiences. The benefits extend beyond students, as the university establishes lasting partnerships with businesses, offering mutual support beyond placement opportunities.
To explore these collaborative possibilities, Ian encourages businesses to connect via LinkedIn, reaching out to Wrexham University directly. The initiative stands as a testament to Wrexham University's commitment to nurturing talent and fostering symbiotic relationships between academia and the business world.
