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, with many returning to recruit each year.
Your designated point of contact in the team will assist with every aspect of arranging an internship or work experience placement. This includes advertising, shortlisting, setting up interviews and monitoring progress.
We also have a network of placement officers working within academic schools to support students who want to undertake a year in industry placement. If this an opportunity you’d like to explore, we will put you in touch with the appropriate contact.
