“My placement year was an excellent experience and one of the best decisions I made whilst at university! I worked with an inspiring group of people, from which I learned a great deal from, gaining the confidence to deliver projects.

I worked on a host of projects that are now directly used by the major global automotive manufacturers. I also had the opportunity to develop other skills, taking part in regular workshops which were hosted for the placement students. This included spending 3 weeks as part of the UX team. My experiences were instrumental in my growth as a full stack developer as I was given the opportunity to greatly improve my front end knowledge.
