Leeds Trinity University was one of the first universities to pioneer compulsory professional work placements with every degree course.
As a result, our graduates are some of the most employable in Yorkshire and beyond. We work in partnership with several thousand employers annually, across all sectors, offering high-quality professional work placements to our students. These include Sky News, the BBC and ASDA as well as hundreds of other organisations and businesses.
