Summer placements

We encourage all our undergraduate students to undertake a summer placement to gain valuable skills in the workplace.

We have a wide range of organisations offering placements, from large corporate companies and public bodies to new start-ups with only a handful of staff. We encourage you to make the most of the opportunities available in order to inform your choice of graduate position.

Some of the organisations we work with include:

  • Talkative
  • HutSix
  • Natural Resources Wales
  • Admiral Insurance
  • Laing O'Rourke
  • Sonocent
  • Transport for Wales

Placements are a fantastic opportunity for you to put the skills you have learned into practise and to develop your confidence in delivering software solutions in the real world.


Most of our summer placements are available in South Wales, as this is where the majority of our industry contacts are located. However, we have had students find placements in organisations in London, the Midlands, the South West and Cornwall. You are able to organise your own summer placements.
