Course leader, Debbie Rowland said: "I’m thrilled to announce the placements for this year's Marketing, Distribution, Sales and Exhibition MA students, and I’m incredibly grateful to all of our partner companies for their commitment to the course.  One of the core values of the NFTS is to provide an unrivalled practical experience of the industry that prepares students for their careers following graduation, and these placements are an essential part of achieving this.  There is no better opportunity for students to fully immerse themselves into the film, television and games industries and to see everything they’ve learned on the course so far in action – I’m really excited for them!" 

We will be catching up with the students later on in their placements to find out how they are getting on!
