Get involved

We are always interested to hear from businesses who would like to be involved with the University. You can engage with students in a number of ways:

Offering work experience or placements 

The University promotes the importance of gaining work experience, and many of our graduates will leave the University with significant work-based skills (for more, see the details of our graduate employability capabilities). Career and Employability Services inputs into this programme by playing an active role in developing students' interpersonal skills, and through organising and encouraging participation in activities designed to develop employability skills.

Consequently, if you can offer work-based learning opportunities to our students please get in touch. We would be happy to discuss your opportunities with you and see how they can fit into our students' needs.

Whatever type of work experience opportunity you can offer - placements, summer internships, work-shadowing, volunteering - we can help you make contact with interested students.

Contact us at or on 01274 234991, and see more about advertising vacancies here.

Delivering employability skills workshops

Every year we have a range of organisations who come in to deliver presentations and workshops to our students as part of our employability programme. Previous guest speakers have talked about specific careers, industry or employability skills, but whatever your idea if you'd like to work with our students we are always happy to hear from you. Email us today.

See our information about Careers Fairs and other events on campus where you can interact with our students.
