What our Students say:
‘The experience I gained during my placement year proved crucial when applying for graduate vacancies. It put me ahead of those who have never worked in the industry. On a personal level, I learned so much during my placement year and it helped me to decide what area of the business I wanted to work in as a graduate. I have no hesitation in recommending the PVM course in LIT. All of the lecturers were very approachable and the subjects were interesting, relevant and up to date.’ Sharon O’Brien, CBRE Australia
