We encourage all our students to gain real-life workplace experience during their time enrolled on one of the University’s courses. This might be anything from working on a live brief for a local SME through to a full year in industry.
These opportunities to gain experience present a real win-win situation: students become instantly more employable and employers gain an extra pair of hands, a fresh perspective and even a trial period with a potential future employee.
Think you could offer a work experience opportunity? How about…?:
Work shadowing: students get a short, first-hand experience of a particular industry and work environment.
Live briefs/Group projects: generally offered to students on a specific course as a part of their academic curriculum.
Part-time roles which students can complete alongside their studies: eg, a day a week to fit in with the academic timetable.
Short placements: anything from a couple of weeks through to a position lasting the whole of the summer vacation.
Industrial/Sandwich/Year-long placements: anything from 40 weeks to a full year in duration. Generally offered to students between Year 2 and Year 3 of their study and a validated part of their course. These roles allow students to become an integral part of your team.
