International work placements

As businesses are increasingly operating in an international marketplace, they have a growing need to recruit the best and brightest talent on a global scale.

An international talent pipeline

The University of Exeter can enable organisations to meet these challenges by using work placements to their advantage. Placements are a low cost recruitment solution, allowing you to employ high-calibre students that can make an immediate impact on your business. They also provide excellent opportunities to test-run talented individuals for subsequent permanent recruitment.


Work placements add value to employers, allowing access to high quality, reflective and analytical thinkers who can complement and re-energise your existing workforce with new ideas, knowledge and up-to-date theoretical concepts. Placements can help fill skills gaps and provide effective solutions to one-off specialist project needs.

Global talent pool

The University of Exeter has a diverse talent pool of over 17,000 students, from 140 different countries. This wide-ranging diversity ensures we can provide the right talent for your organisation wherever you are in the world or help you to catalyse the internationalisation of your business. Over 4300 of our students are multi-lingual and are thus well-placed to research and analyse country-specific market intelligence and help establish business networks.

International virtual careers fair

A great way to promote your graduate vacancies and internships is through our International Virtual Careers Fairs. The next fair will be between the 15th and 25th of October 2013. Please contact you would like to be notified when bookings are open.
