Placement Experience: Naomi, Interior Designer, Stride Treglown

”It goes without saying that a placement year is invaluable and the fact that the University offer this and support you throughout, is definitely something to take advantage of.”

”Don’t be disheartened if your first interview doesn’t go as well as you want it to. Use this experience as practice for the next one!”

”Widen your comfort zone. Don’t limit yourself to applying for placements in certain locations. Go somewhere new, apply for placements all over including the places you’ve never even considered.”

Naomi Cripps, BA (Hons) Interior Design student, shares her placement experience with us; what she’s learnt, her highlights, new skills, advice for fellow students and why she really recommends taking a year out in industry…
