Real Work Experience

A degree isn't just about looking good on paper. It's also about having the practical knowledge and professional skills that can be valuable to employers.

Some of our courses offer a free sandwich option which provides up to one year's employment experience. Choosing the sandwich route can help with your academic work and with getting a job after graduation. We will help you find your work placement and you can even work overseas if you’re keen to spread your wings.

As this is an important feature in a number of our courses we have decided that students starting their course in September 2015 will not be charged a fee for their placement year. (Please note, this does not apply to courses that are NHS and TDA funded).

You may also be able to do a placement as part of your course module, which can range from two weeks to one semester.
