I got an industrial placement offer from Jadu. Without the help and support of the employability tutors at Leicester, it would not have been possible, so I am very thankful. The sessions were great, they taught us a lot of things, and we were guided really well through the process.

- Shatadbi Roy, Computer Science with Industry MSc, 2014-15.

I applied directly to IBM India. Working with the latest technology, team of professionals and sharing experiences with them has taught me a lot. I've now become quite certain on what would be the most suitable career for me. This placement has provided me with a lot of experience about the real world, which is very different from what we see at university.

- Tarun Sharma, BSc Computing with Industry, 2016-17.
