Work Experience

Work placements

We encourage all students to undertake work placements or internships with our business partners.

Work experience allows you to put theoretical knowledge into practice. This is an important asset in today’s competitive job market.

Through work experience you will learn:

  • technical skills
  • people management, self-management and work management skills
  • organisational protocol

Undergraduate students have the option of spending an intercalated year in industry as part of their course. We partner with international businesses who often look for interns. You can also contact the Careers Service for help finding a placement.

Pathway students may find work placements during the holiday periods.

Postgraduate students have the option of carrying out a practical dissertation in a real-life work environment. Our Career Services team is here to help you organise this.

For further information or to contact the Careers Service ask at the Welcome Desk or email us.
