Work Experience

We support our students to achieve the very best academic outcomes and provide as many practical opportunities as possible with some of the very best companies and organisations available. Work experience is more important than ever as most employers and may universities expect candidates to have some form of practical experience.

  • Placements aligned with your career aspirations
  • Experiences that blend practical elements with academic studies
  • Flexible options from regular weekly placements to those worked around free periods and holidays
  • Support to find volunteering opportunities to gain experience and prepare for employment
  • Links with over 600 organisations and charities

Could your organistion/charity support our students with Work Experience?

We look to continually grow our provision for work experience and volunteering so if you would like to get involved, we will be very pleased to hear with you.
