If you choose the industrial placement option, you’ll benefit from a year’s paid work experience – something that is highly valued by employers. Former students have completed their placements at UK companies such as BUPA, Virgin Trains, Debenhams, HSBC, IBM, Thomson Reuters, Unilever and Walt Disney. To help you get ready for work, we run popular employability skills workshops for all students. Topics include CV writing, job applications and cover letters and testing centres. You can also attend talks by former students and employers on how to succeed in the job market. Our graduates have gone on to careers with companies including Accenture, IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Bank of New York, Coca Cola, and the BBC.
