Undergraduate and post-graduate students can gain access to work experience and work-related opportunities in the UK and abroad.

All of our work experience opportunities can be flexible around your studies.


Working with Employers

Our  team have lots of experience in successfully placing students on valuable global work placements. We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations and companies, including those within the private, public and voluntary sectors. Placements can be arraged for either individuals or groups. We can also assist with self-sourced placements. In any work placement you will get a chance to utilise and develop your unique skills and talents.

Once you've completed a work placement, you will be issued with a certificate and usually provided with a reference by your employer. Global Leaders Programme points are also available, as are other opportunities through the Centre for Global Engagement.

What Our Students Say

During my internship at the Oxfam Charity Organisation I was able to develop and build on the studies from my MSc International Business Degree at Coventry University. I was given the opportunity to apply marketing concepts and online marketing, engage in providing customer service and experience how a charity operates.
