Information for Students

The benefits of completing a work placement

You will:

  • Learn what it means to work in a real-life business environment
  • Gain a better understanding of careers within your chosen sector
  • Have an opportunity to build up confidence and team working skills
  • Boost your CV and future career prospects
  • Understand what employers expect from a new recruit – e.g. punctuality; meeting deadlines; problem solving; teamwork
  • Build up industry knowledge – which helps with your course and career progression
  • Be on the employer’s radar for any job opportunities (many students secure work where they carried out their placement).
Our experienced Work Placement team can help you find a placement, or support you in finding your own.
