Our courses are relevant and many are practically based. Thanks to our close links with local employers, we are able to offer a range of work experiencevolunteering and internship opportunities.

Investing in your career

Worcester has a number of initiatives, which will enhance your employability skills. One of these is 'Earn as You Learn' which encourages students to seek part time employment during their time at Worcester in order to improve their employability on graduation, as well as paying some bills. Staff across the university are happy to help students to identify the skills they have gained during this work which will be relevant for their longer term careeers aspirations. Many courses have work experience modules which enable work to inform their studies and vice versa.

We want to help all our students to prepare for work by optimising their applications, developing their CVs and enhancing their interview technique.

To support our students we have developed a suite of opportunities, which include internships, work placements and our paid student ambassador scheme.

Placements give you the chance to put what you learn into practice, resulting in an invaluable combination of qualifications and experience that marks you out when applying for graduate jobs.

You can access specialist staff offering careers guidance tailored to your academic subject area through our Careers Service.
