Year in industry
  • By taking this option, you benefit from increased confidence and experience when entering the working world. A year in industry also gives you the opportunity to increase your contacts and network so that you can hit the ground running when you graduate. It is taken in addition to your undergraduate programme and normally falls between your second and final year. If taken, the year itself is assessed on a pass/fail basis through employer feedback and a written report that you submit.
  • Students usually work on placement for the entire calendar year. Salary and holiday entitlements vary according to your employer. However, many students find that they earn enough to be able to save some income, and this often helps them in returning to study.
  • A work placement provides practical experience that can be put to good use in your study. It gives you a sense of how the theory works in practice and improves your skills in many areas. It also allows you to evaluate a particular career path, and gain knowledge of the working environment.
