My Year in Industry… at a Small Company

Hi, I’m Vinnie, I study Social and Political Sciences, and I did a Year in Industry. I would love to tell you about my work placement, and whether you should consider doing a Year in Industry.

I present a personal perspective which intends to leave you considering whether you should do a Year in Industry.

I’m Taylor and I am a final year English Language and Linguistics (with placement year) student and I want to share some of the opportunities that are offered as part of your programme of study at the University of York, and in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science.
