Year In Industry

Year in Industry

All undergraduate students have the opportunity to undertake an optional Year in Industry placement between their second and third year of study. Students are employed by a business whilst remaining a student of the University. Students are responsible for sourcing and applying for placements but the University support them in their search and the application process.

A Year in Industry is a fantastic opportunity for a student to enhance their employability prospects, develop new skills sought after by employers, trial a career role and apply academic knowledge in an industrial setting.
