Internships and placements

Internships are:

  • Paid employment opportunities reserved for UoE students and graduates.
  • Responsibilities where you can support or lead a project, process or people.
  • The opportunity to apply and develop your skills, knowledge and experience.
  • Training and support from understanding employers
  • Valuable experience to aid your career development. 

Placements are:

  • Very similar to internships, apart that placements are part of a credit bearing module on your degree.
  • It is possible your internship could meet the requirements of your placement, but you need to check with your College Employability Managers/Tutor. If yes, you will need to complete the placement paperwork required by your college, by the deadlines they set.
