Work placements in the UK and overseas
After year two, you have the opportunity to apply the skills you’ve gained by taking a one-year paid work placement. This is a great way to improve your industry knowledge with real insight and experience. It also enables you to build an eye-catching CV to impress future employers, and many students find jobs with their placement companies after graduating.
Due to our strong relationships with regional, national and international employers, we can help you to secure a great placement opportunity and support you while you are there.
Alternatively, you will have the opportunity to complete the ‘Learning in the Workplace’ semester where you work and study at the same time, with academic lessons carried out remotely during allocated study periods while on placement. This ‘Learning in the Workplace’ experience is recognised by the University as a placement and offers students an accelerated opportunity to complete their studies and gain work experience in three rather than four years. By successfully completing this experience, you will be able to obtain ‘placement’ in your degree title and enter directly into the final year of studies. Currently this is offered at The Stanley Hotel in Colorado, USA.
