All of our undergraduate degrees have an optional year in industry, and opportunities for shorter placements too.

A placement lets you apply your learning in the real world. It can give you important skills such as time-management, teamwork, IT and communicating with colleagues.

All of the placements we advertise are paid. Salaries are typically £14,000 - £18,000, but have been as high as £45,000. This shows the calibre of company we attract and the high regard they hold for our students.
