Your work and career
We’ll help you to get as much as you can out of your time here, so that you can go on to find – or create – work that excites and rewards you.
Employability skills, career planning and professional practice are embedded in each of our courses. And with accredited courses, the option of a professional placement year, and field experience you’ll have a professional advantage when you graduate.
Placements and volunteering
Placements are a great way to build your confidence, get work experience, earn some money and help decide what career path you want to take while volunteering gives you valuable experience and a different way of learning. Some courses have placements embedded and some give you the opportunity to opt to take a voluntary placement and complete a practical project with a local community or voluntary organisation.
Check out the latest placement opportunities on the placement blog.
Our placements team can help you look for opportunities while our careers team can help you find rewarding volunteering opportunities to help build your CV.
