Leeds Trinity University has a reputation for producing highly employable graduates, who are sought after by employers in a wide range of sectors. Many of our students also become respected freelancers and entrepreneurs. Our approach to real world experience and professional placements is a big reason for that.
Many universities will give you the chance to do a placement, but we build professional work placements into all our undergraduate degrees and they are part of the academic year rather than separate sandwich years.
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, Aviva and the NHS as well as local businesses both in the private and third sector.
Wide variety of placement opportunities
Thanks to these relationships, we have a wide range of placement opportunities for Leeds Trinity students with both local and national organisations.
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.
We'll give you a placement allowance for every placement you complete, which you can use towards the cost of your travel. If your placement requires a DBS the university helps to arrange that and pays for it too.
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.
