Leeds Trinity University has a reputation for producing highly employable graduates, and our approach to work placements is a big reason for that.
Many universities will give you the chance to do a placement, but we build two professional work placements into all our undergraduate degrees.
So no matter what you study, you will graduate with degree-relevant experience, industry contacts and valuable employer references.
Excellent employer relationships
We’ve developed relationships with more than 3,000 employer partners across the UK, giving you access to placement opportunities in a wide range of industries.
These include leading national employers such as ITV, Arcadia Group and the NHS to name a few.
Exclusive placement opportunities
Thanks to these relationships, we have a wide range of exclusive placement opportunities for Leeds Trinity students which means you won't have to face competition from other university students.
Direct access to employer networks
Through initiatives such as our placement conferences, employer networking events and sector seminars, you'll get direct access to employers networks that provide placements, volunteering opportunities and graduate roles.
You’ll get support from our dedicated placement team, who will work with you to identify the right placement opportunity for you.
We run a two-week intensive placement preparation programme, as well as support from our placement team, academic and support staff.
We'll give you a placement allowance for every placement you complete, which you can use towards the cost of your travel.
Experience that counts
All our professional work placements are part of an assessed module, which means that the experience you gain counts towards your final degree classification.
We encourage you to complete your placement abroad to boost your confidence and global awareness and make your CV stand out.
We offer opportunities in countries like South Africa, Fiji, Rwanda and Malaysia and we help you apply for financial support from available grants.
