Creating global talent

Employability

The skills and talents you develop at BU today will open up a world of opportunity tomorrow: enabling you to work around the world, influence global thinking and lead innovation.

Academic excellence is just the starting point for the education you’ll enjoy at BU. Our courses allow you to gain real-world experience all the way through your studies – from the invaluable work placement opportunities we offer every student, to collaborations with business and overseas exchanges.  

Combined with our world-class facilities, renowned teaching and pioneering research, you’ll develop into what we believe is 'global talent': an outward-looking, forward-thinking and globally employable citizen of the world.

Did you know? In 2016, 93.6% of BU students were in work or further study within six months of graduating.

"The benefits of placements are endless. They’ll put you in such a better position compared to someone without the same experience when applying for future job roles, especially graduate positions."

Chloe Mulligan, BA (Hons) Business Studies, Virgin Media Intern Superstar of the Year 2016

To come from university into this highly complex environment and perform at this very high level is truly exceptional. In order to keep Anna Maria in IBM, we have done something unusual and extended the student contract post-placement, which means she can work on an hourly basis as her studies allow – until she hopefully can come back full-time as a graduate.” IBM, about BU placement student Anna-Maria Rusanova, 2016
