Year in industry and placement modules

Experience has shown that students undertaking a placement as part of their degree/postgraduate course rapidly become part of your workforce, and are able to make a real difference to business operations bringing fresh ideas, energy and current knowledge. These programmes allow your business to employ students as a full-time member of staff for a fixed period, lasting for around 48 weeks for sandwich degree students or shorter durations for students undertaking placement modules.

Your business can also tap into specific areas of research or expertise, as placements are supported by an academic from the University.


Recruiting an intern can be an excellent way to bring additional talent into your workplace, providing additional resources to the team to tackle a defined or new project, or perhaps helping to develop an area of work where up-to-date knowledge or research is required. Internships are a period of paid work experience for students or graduates of between 2 to 16 weeks. These normally take place over the Easter or summer period and works around business needs, being either part or full-time. Internships are paid via the business and we can work with you to design the right type of internship for your business needs.
