Industrial experience

Some of our courses include the option to work in industry during your degree, allowing you to increase your potential of gaining a well-paid graduate position and a higher degree classification.

Increasingly, employers are looking for graduates with real industrial experience, and being able to prove this can give you a real advantage after graduating. Working in industry will help you to understand what you can and want to do, and many students have described taking an industrial experience option as life-changing.
