We understand that in today's competitive jobs market, more and more employers expect new graduates to have substantial experience of the workplace.
Completing a placement is an excellent way to put what you have learned on your course into practice and develop new skills relevant to your future career.
This experience can prove to be a significant advantage when seeking full-time employment - indeed, many of our students end up returning to the company where they undertook their placements as permanent employees after they graduate.
The experience gained during placements often gives graduates the chance to take on higher paid first positions.
Watch the experiences of our students.
