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 dedicated Futures Connect team who organise both work experience opportunities and paid internships. The team can provide support throughout this process, helping with everything from advertising to induction and monitoring of 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. We can put you in touch with the appropriate contact should this be an opportunity you would like to explore.

Students with a specific skillset

Each Academic School arranges its own placements. For example, the MBA and the MSc in Strategic Marketing courses team students with local and national businesses to create marketing and business plans.

For further information please contact the individual Schools.
