“Leeds Beckett was a no-brainer. I love the city, and the facilities were so much better than anywhere else I’d seen. The placements were second to none - my first was with Leeds United FC, and without that opportunity I wouldn’t have secured my first job. I couldn’t have done this role without the confidence and expertise from my studies.
