I was interested to read Sara Goscombe’s letter (DW 13 April) commenting on Ibrahim Ibrahim’s article (DW 30 March) about student placements.
At Ordnance Survey, we have been offering paid graphic design placements for undergraduate sandwich students for the past two years. However, since contacting universities and colleges in February and advertising the placement on our website, we have received no applications at all.
Are universities and colleges failing to forward information, or are students no longer interested in gaining invaluable practical experience?
