Getting the most out of your degree

Your employability programme

To help you manage your employability development over the course of your study time, we have put together an outline of activities that take place over the year.

Placements and internships

As well as gaining your degree, we want you to be equipped to enter the jobs market or take on further education, upon graduation. We encourage students at all levels to gain practical experience, where possible, during your degree.

Company projects

Some Masters students are offered the opportunity to take on company dissertation projects. A company project enables you to structure your dissertation around a particular issue or challenge set by the host organisation.

International summer schools

We encourage students across all levels to engage with one of our summer school activities. The experiences offer the chance to expand your horizons with a truly international experience.

Professional memberships

Many of our programmes carry additional accreditations from world-leading professional bodies, which may be beneficial to you, depending on your career aspirations.
