Industrial placements and graduate recruitment

We have been offering degree programmes with a 12 month placement in industry for over 20 years.

We educate a diverse range of talented graduates who are sought after in a wide range of professions.

Recent statistics show that 89% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduating. 85% of these students are in managerial and professional jobs.

Current students can now spend time on industrial placement on the BSc and MChem courses. Placements usually run for a full calendar year and typically start July-September.
