Placements opportunities

We’re one of only a few UK universities to include professional work placements with every degree, so you’ll graduate with extensive industry experience without having to take a sandwich year out.

Our students have completed their placements at a wide range of organisations – from film production companies and recording studios, to local newspapers and MPs’ offices. If you’re interested in teaching, you could also experience working in a primary or secondary school.
