Internships & Work Experience

Internships & short-term work experience

Coventry University works closely with companies across the UK and globally to promote a wide variety of internships to our students during study breaks.

Recruitment of placement students

Work placements will usually last for 12 months as part of a traditional 4-year “sandwich” course degree (i.e. where the third year is spent in industry).

Why hire an intern or placement student?

Hiring an intern or placement student allows employers to:

  • Gain student input or technical expertise for a focused scope of work or ongoing project
  • Gain a fresh perspective or creative ways of solving a problem from students studying a relevant degree
  • Support succession planning for future graduate recruitment within your organisation
  • Have access to a short term cost effective resource for a given period

Our students also benefit from:

  • Direct industry experience helping them to apply practical aspects to their learning
  • Real-life work experience to enable them to prepare for the world of work
  • Network and build contacts ready for graduate employment
