We offer a range of placement and internship opportunities, alongside detailed careers guidance, to equip you with the tools to succeed in the graduate jobs market. This is the place where you can expand your horizons and unleash your full potential.
Many schools in the faculty run academic modules with placements and career-related skills built in (see course catalogues for each school). Additionally, the Faculty of Social Sciences runs an exclusive placements programme of term-time opportunities for both undergraduates and postgraduates across all years of study. There are both paid and volunteer opportunities at local, national and even international level, across a wide range of organisations and businesses.
