Industrial Visits

WMG organises up to 40-45 Industrial Visits to local national and international companies, so that postgraduate students on the full time masters programme have the opportunity to see, at first-hand industry in action and to learn about their systems, products and processes.

There are two types of visits:

  • In-module visits – these are focused & specific to the module which is being studied and are arranged by module leaders during term time.
  • Supplementary visits – these are a wider variety, we aim to have at least 1 visit per week and there are generally up to 30 spaces, depending on how many visitors companies can accommodate. We advertise on our events system so that all students have the opportunity to reserve and book their place throughout the year.

We aim to source Industrial Visits from a variety of industries such as within the automotive, food and drink, supply chain and logistics and construction areas.
