We have more students on work placements than any other university in Great Britain* and we believe that taking a work placement as part of your degree can help you stand out from the crowd.
We offer work placements on all our full degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. These can be in the shape of year-long placements or shorter options, and support our belief that your education should deliver you with skills that you can immediately put to use in the workplace as well as sound theoretical understanding.
Our work is recognised around the world, which means that we are able to offer outstanding work placements that will inform your learning as well as enabling you to refine your career choices and build your own networks while you are still studying.
You’ll be helped by our Careers & Employability Service as well as the excellent contacts of our academic staff, many of whom have worked in, or still work in, their field.
In addition, many of our courses have been developed hand-in-hand with professional bodies, so our students are sought-after when it comes to placements, and we work with companies like IBM and JPMorgan to make sure you have the skills they are looking for.
