Business Internships and Placements module

The Business Internships and Placements module is designed for Year 2 undergraduates, to encourage students to enhance their employability through a guided programme of study and practical work-based experience.

Direction is provided through subject-based seminars, interactive electronic resources and personal guidance. An understanding of the key elements of the selection and recruitment process, raising self-awareness of key skills and competencies will be covered.

 Students are required to undertake an approved work placement or summer internship, for a minimum of 140 hours (4 weeks). This can be completed during or after the taught element of the module, part-time or full-time.

Students are responsible for sourcing and securing their own placement.

It was exciting to have the chance to do something that would have a real impact on a local business.
