We are very supportive of our students securing placement opportunities outside of the UK and each year have approximately five percent of our placement students will work in the EU with an additional five percent working outside of the EU.
Securing a placement overseas will not only provide you with the experience of graduate level employment it will provide you with 12 months experience of a different culture, environment and language.
If you do choose to take an industrial placement outside of the UK there are a few things that you must remember:
- If the placement is in a different country with a different language it will be very difficult to work and enjoy the atmosphere if you do not speak that language.
- The application processes for countries other than the UK are likely to be different so it is important that you do your own research into the preferred customs and application styles. Prospects has some excellent resources for applying for jobs outside of the UK
