Enhance your employability

Course placements

We're one of the few institutions that offers you the opportunity to gain from a placement while studying for a Master's.

Going on a placement, or having a part-time job, while you study not only helps you financially, but also helps you develop the skills that employers want.

Our Careers & Employability Service and your faculty placements office will support you in finding an appropriate role and help you with your application. And we’ll support you throughout your time working in industry. 

We have links with hundreds of organisations across a range of industries in the UK – and around in the world – giving you a variety of placement options. If you’re interested in working for a particular company, and it’s not one that we already have links with, we’ll support you when it comes to making contact and arranging your placement too.

If you want to find out what it's like to go on a work placement as a postgraduate student, read Claire Boucher’s blog about her placement experience.
