Make yourself more employable with a work placement

Many of our courses offer the opportunity to undertake relevant work placements, get industry-specific career advice, hear from business experts and take part in relevant trips and visits. These insider experiences within your field of study enhance your employability when you graduate.

Graduate internships

Graduate internships are an increasingly popular way of launching your career. Working as an intern in a firm for a set amount of time after graduation boosts your confidence and workplace skills, and is a great way of making valuable contacts in your chosen profession. Lincoln graduates are linked to companies who offer these opportunities and are provided with practical support on how to obtain an internship.

Funding your work placement

At Lincoln, fees are not charged for your work placement year but students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and general living costs while undertaking a placement. Opportunities vary from course to course, and details on work placement opportunities can be found on individual course webpages.
