Case Study

We are passionate about preparing our graduates for the next stage of their career.  Relevant work experience while you are at university will help you to secure a good graduate job.

Our network of businesses provides a range of internships that are relevant to your degree and offer you the opportunity to apply your academic knowledge in real world situations - and get paid for it!

Our University Careers Department offers a comprehensive service providing advice and guidance on writing CVs and job applications, preparing you for interviews, mentoring, volunteering, and much more.

Making the most of these services means that our students gain valuable experience, improved confidence and they develop skills that are sought after by employers.

Undergraduate student Jack Croft (MSci Computer Science and Mathematics) had this to say about his internship:

“My internship was with IT company Soshimo Limited, which was based on campus in InfoLab21. I chose them as I thought the internship would help expand my skills. They were also really friendly people!

“The most important things I gained were skills in web development, and more familiarity with a working environment. The internship has definitely influenced my future plans - I’m more interested in web-based employment options now, and following the internship I got a job with a company based in the same office as Soshimo.

“I felt supported throughout my internship and would strongly recommend the internship programme to other students. Gaining experience is invaluable!”
