Impact of the coronavirus on work placements, field trips and volunteering

We work with a range of organisations to provide work placements, field trips and volunteer opportunities. As you'll appreciate they are all disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.

We expect opportunities to run as usual from the academic year 2021/22 but this cannot be guaranteed. We will do our best to arrange suitable activities as previous students always tell us how vauable these opportunities are.

Our Careers and Employment Service have arranged online work experience opportunities that you can do from home including internships, placements, insights and vacation schemes.

We are committed to sharing our research and teaching, and highlight the following projects in the School of English:
