Work Placements



Watch this video to find out how you could benefit from a paid 8 week summer work placement on offer through your Students' Union.

We partner with social enterprises across Sheffield to give you first hand experience that is crucial to developing your skills, making you stand out to employers and putting what you've learnt on your course into practice. These work placements have been highly beneficial for past students with almost all getting jobs straight after university as a result.

Summer placement applications are now OPEN and will close on 26th April 2017.
If you have applied, thank you very much and if you missed out, please look out for more next year.
