Work Experience and Placements

We are committed to providing students with opportunities to gain work-related learning. This can be in the form of a short work experience insight, paid internships or a full-year placement.

We are always looking to engage with employers who wish to recruit our students, and many return to recruit each year.

We have a network of placement officers working within academic schools to support students who want to undertake a year in industry placement. We can put you in touch with the appropriate contact should this be an opportunity you would like to explore.

Work experience during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

We are committed to providing students with opportunities to gain work-related learning and, where possible to do so safely, we hope to continue to do this.

We are already working with a large number of organisations who have successfully migrated their internships and work experience placements to remote working. We hope to support as many businesses as we can during this time.

Our dedicated Futures Connect team will assist with every aspect of arranging an internship or work experience placement. this includes, advertising, shortlisting, setting up online interviews and monitoring progress. If you would like to find out more please contact us.
