Andy Morgan 2009 Graduate, Media Executive, Hull Kingston Rovers Rugby Club

“As part of my degree I was fortunate enough to obtain a placement at the press office for Wakefield Wildcats Rugby Club. The professional placement during my degree proved to be invaluable as it gave me a step in the right direction and I received great feedback. Without the experience and high standard of teaching I gained at Leeds Trinity, I wouldn’t have got where I am today.”
