Work Placements

Prepare for your career with practical placements

You can apply for a year long industrial placement during your degree.

As well as giving you an opportunity to put your studies into practice and use the skills you develop on your course, undertaking a placement helps to improve your CV and shows employers that you have already completed work in industry when you graduate.

Placements years usually take place between your second and third years of study. You will spend 1 year working with a company in industry before returning to the University to complete your final year. This effectively extends your studies by one year.

The placement will be a paid position, with pay at or above the National Minimum Wage.

Placement years are competitive. We will support you in finding and applying for a suitable placement, but we are unable to guarantee placement years.
