    Does anyone know any companies that do industrial placements for ICT/computer networking/cyber security in the west midlands?
    Or any tips on finding one? I've looked at all the past ones that have been offered in my university but there weren't many and some of them don't do them anymore


    Are companies really strict on the terms for your application? Some ask for UCAS points higher than what I have.

    I looked up a few of the GSK placements and saw a few were outside London :confused:

    Have you tried Unilever or NHS or IBM? They could provide you an industrial placement can't they?

    Woops, I just google mapped the first few places I saw and saw they are in/around London which is a bit far for me because I'm from the west midlands
    Unilever need 300 UCAS points, but I shall check the other two. Thank you!
