Some of our programmes encourage students to take a year out to work for an organisation, also known as a “sandwich year”, to form part of their overall university experience.
This not only gives our students an advantage in developing their workplace skills whilst at university but also gives businesses an additional resource for up to 12 months on projects such as marketing campaigns, initiating new policies, or developing a new team.
Subject areas which offer opportunities for Year in Industry include:
- Business Management
- Computer Science
- Engineering (Chemical, Civil, Electronic and Electrical, Mechanical)
Students are expected to be paid at least the National Minimum Wage or salary pro rata during this time with a fixed-term contract.
You can advertise your vacancy to our students and graduates up to two years post-graduation free of charge using our Careers Connect online jobs portal.
