Placements and industry links


Work Experience

The Placements Team at Royal Holloway is offering a limited number of work experience placements to interested students studying Music. If you are a second year Music student, this is your chance to develop professional skills and improve your career prospects after graduation in your desired career area.

Placements include a varied selection of work experiences tailored to the students' interests. Placements are typically 2-4 weeks in length and will take place between June and September 2017. Most of the placements are located around London, but requests for flexibility in location will be taken into account.

Apply for the scheme

To gain a placement secured by The Placements Team, students will have to go through a competitive selection process.

To find out more about the application process you are invited to an Intro to Placements presentation for Music students on Friday 7th October, 1-2pm, Room: QUEENS-170.

Cases studies

“My mornings and afternoons varied, I did a lot of programming of classes into the website and worked on the customer service phones, taking bookings and solving any problems. I helped set up for concerts, I would join members of the team in sorting out various performance venues for the choir concerts. For one concert I stayed and helped– it was great to hear the choir perform, and see how much enjoyment people got out of singing together”

Intern @ City Academy

“Highlight was going into an Advertising and Campaign Company to help with filming for an event FutureRising was holding. I got to interview several big names in advertising, including the team that came up with the Turkish Airline ‘Gotham’ adverts. I also got to write some of my own questions for the interview, and further interviews, which included researching on a well-known stylist and coming up with questions for her”
