We believe in equipping you with the skills, knowledge and experience that make you highly desirable to employers once you graduate: 90% of our graduates enter employment or further study within six months.

Many of our our undergraduate courses offer you the opportunity of taking a sandwich placement between years 2 and 3 of teaching.

Sandwich placements give you experience of seeking and securing a job, and working in an industry relevant to your course. You'll gain invaluable experience, knowledge and contacts, along with skills that you can apply to the final year of your course and your future career.

Our students have undertaken placements with companies including Kier, Morgan Sindall, Transport for London, The Royal Household and Skanska.
