We encourage you to undertake a work placement during your degree.
This will enable you to engage in the world of work and learn about the professional environment. It’s an opportunity for you to apply theory to practice, develop skills, learn from industry professionals as well as explore a future career path. This ultimately supports you in developing your employability skills and prepares you for future employment.
The two work placement options are:
Year-long work placement
You will complete a four-year degree and your work placement will take place in your third year. The work placement can take place in the UK or globally and after completion, you will return to Warwick for your final year. Your year-long work placement will be formally recognised on your Higher Education Achievement Report.
Short work placements
We also support students to undertake shorter work placements throughout the year.
As part of the Certificate of Professional Communication, you will undertake a short four-week work placement which takes place during the summer. This placement will be formally recognised on your Higher Education Achievement Report.
If you are interested in an intercalated or short work placement, please contact our Employability and Placement Manager, Bodrun Nahar.
