Benefits of doing an Internship or a Student Placement

Internships can be a great way for university students and graduates to get valuable work experience in the area they are interested in. Internships can be classed as a 1 week to 12 month experience in an organisation, which can be paid or unpaid depending on Industry/Sector, and encompass the full range of professions, from Engineering to Accountancy and Marketing to IT.

Industrial Placement or a Student Placement is a ‘real’ work experience gained within a ‘real’ working environment that will complement and support the student’s degree qualification and provide mutual benefit to both the employer and the student.

Interns Placement Success Stories

Rosie- Successful Intern
  • I wanted to improve my chances of employment after I graduate and learn how skills I've developed in university can translate to a working environment. I also wanted to find out what kind of job I would want to go into after university, and what working in an office is like.

    I'm very happy I did the placement, as I didn't get my placement until very late in the academic year. I had considered not doing one at all but I'm pleased I stuck at it.

    I would definitely recommend doing a placement as you gain invaluable experience and insight into a work environment which university can't fully prepare you for (although they do try their best). If you're still one of the last people to get a placement, don't worry! Just keep trying and it will pay off.
