Your future career is our priority

We are continuously enhancing our range and quality of service in order to help our students identify and achieve individual career aspirations. Internships and provide students with the opportunity to put the theory they have learnt in the classroom into practice in a professional environment. Feedback from students and host organisations indicates that such experiences greatly enhance student employability:

  • Considerable transferable business skills can be gained in a very short period of time that  would be difficult to grasp through study alone.  
  • Enhance your CV and be noticed.  
  • Equip yourself with valuable insights into your strengths and preferences for a future career path post-graduation.

"... I wanted something solid on my CV that would improve my employability.... you should definitely consider it if you want to differentiate yourself. It’s not enough to say you have a First Class degree; employers are looking for something extra and you gain so much from doing a placement....”
Intikhab Akhtar, 2012
BSc Management with Marketing Graduate

Lawrence Edwards BSc Mgt with IBLawrence spent a five week internship last Summer in China with Huawei, working on projects in their R&D, legal and public affairs teams.

"I came back feeling humbled, motivated and especially thankful. This was due to the fact that the hardships in China were almost always present in one form or another and that China’s political and economic system were vastly different to that of Britain.

I visited an area responsible for the growth that China has experienced in recent years - Shenzhen, which is a hub for outsourced manufacturing. My experiences there gave great insights into how and why `Made-in-China’ has grown into markets worldwide.

Overall, I carry with me amazing memories of my learning and living experiences in China, particularly the challenges of living in Beijing and Shenzhen."
