Work placements

Work placements set you up for success

The University of Hertfordshire is committed to your future and we believe work placements are career gold. We have far-reaching relationships with businesses, both internationally and closer to home.

Work placements have amazing benefits for students:

  • gain valuable experience – research shows that over 70% of employers prefer students with work experience.
  • explore career possibilities and make valuable contacts.

Employers benefit too:

  • fresh, new talent that comes without a long-term commitment
  • access to a cost-effective, flexible labour source
  • summer internships, 6 or 9-12 months work placements or short periods of work experience available

Subject areas

We run work placements across a series of subject areas:

  • art and design, astronomy, computer science, engineering, film and media, mathematics, music and physics
  • business-related areas and tourism management
  • biosciences, pharmaceutical sciences, environment science, life sciences, geography, sports therapy and sports science
