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

  • I gained invaluable experience which has aided my professional growth much more than I had anticipated from my placement year. I attended many professional networking events and was also able to visit Paris with the company to gain some international experience.

    The experience I have gained has prepared me immensely not only for my final year at Aston University, but has given me a great advantage for applying for graduate roles. I have a wider skillset and have gained much more confident professionally from my placement.
