Careers and employability

Help students get a foot on the career ladder by supporting our work placements programme

Work placements can open the door to graduate employment.

Michaela, PhD History

“The internship was a fantastic opportunity and my professional confidence grew. It also paid me a living wage – something that most internships do not do. It was amazing to be able to do my dream job and get paid for doing it!”

Having relevant work experience can help make a student stand out from thousands of competing applicants.

Working in partnership with our Careers & Employability Service, and building on the success of the pilot year, we need to raise over £100,000 to help another 100+ students find work placements.
