Our strong relationships with commercial organisations are crucial to the research we conduct and the student experience we provide. We work with industry on technology transfer and commercialising research breakthroughs, while our network of external companies and institutions underpins our renowned Professional Training and research placements.

Work with our students

We give our undergraduate students the chance to do a Professional Training placement where they work in industry for up to a year, and we are always happy to have more companies offer themselves for placements. Most students start looking for placements in October, but please feel free to contact us at any time as we are aware that industry sectors vary in their planning timetables. Find out more about recruiting a placement student.

We will be happy to advertise any paid opportunities that meet our scheme requirements to students via our online placement list, so if you feel you have a suitable placement opportunity or have a question about this scheme, then please email with the following information:

  • Link to your company website or information about the company
  • A job description and/or job advert
  • An overview of your recruitment process and a closing date (if appropriate).

We would also be happy to discuss the arrangement of company presentations and interviews on campus should you require this.
