Internships and placements

Internships and placements are a great opportunity to see what the sector you want to go into is like, try out specific job roles, and gain the skills that employers want.

They help you to answer important questions like "what do I enjoy?", "what am I good at?" and "what are my strengths?"

Internships are available to students from all years of study including first years and postgraduates.
