Placements and internships

Are you looking for someone to fill an existing vacancy, support a particular department or take on a project that other staff may not have the time or skills for?

Why not take advantage of your position as an alumnus to help your business and your future fellow-alumni by offering a paid placement or an internship to a current student?

Placements are a great way to bring fresh knowledge, skills and enthusiasm into your organisation and boost your human resources.

  • Excellent value - placement students can bring up-to-date skills at a relatively low cost.
  • Low risk - on-going assessment and support from the University helps ensure high levels of satisfaction.
  • Energy and enthusiasm - with a little bit of direction placement students can achieve excellent results.
  • Fresh outlook - students can bring an unbiased view to your organisation.

Our students have the skills and up-to-date knowledge that employers want, as evidenced by our top-10 ranking nationally for:

  • undergraduate and postgraduate employability,
  • student placements in industry,
  • the number of student and graduate businesses supported.

Some recent participants in our placement scheme include the Co-operative Bank, Cummins, EMI Music Publishing, Next, O2, Renault Gears, Sumo Digital and Virgin Media.

Contact us to give us details about your vacancy and we'll do the rest.
