What employers are saying about us


Work experience and placements

A number of our degrees offer workplace or industrial experience as part of the course; students on many more of our courses take up internship opportunities as a way of gaining relevant occupational experience. All students have the option to apply for a voluntary year out to undertake work-based learning. We can help you source work experience, including internships.

Alternatively, you can gain experience through approximately 8,000 opportunities to work or volunteer here on campus. Our temping agency, Unitemps, shares vacancies and can help to find you a job that fits around your study. You may also develop new skills through study abroad or additional overseas activities such as summer schools and volunteering.

We offer careers and skills support throughout your time at Warwick and after graduation, including:

  • Access to nearly 300 representatives from all job sectors that visit campus each year for careers fairs, presentations and workshops
  • Departmental careers consultants with an in-depth understanding of your subject
  • Job applications and interview practice
  • Face-to-face and online skills development courses
  • Access to thousands of job vacancies, targeted specifically at Warwick students

“Getting inspired by Theatre”

“The Theatre department recently hosted an alumni event. It was really exciting to meet people who had once been exactly in our position! Whilst some worked in the theatre industry (such as actress Bathsheba Piepe and producer/director Lawrence Till), others worked in different areas (such as Laura Williams, an specialist Art, Design & Architecture Librarian at the University of Huddersfield).”

"My internship so far"

“I will not lie – it has been a lot of effort, and I never run out of anything to do. However, this experience has boosted my confidence. I have realised that I am able to pick up relevant research skills quickly and efficiently.”

"What I’ve learnt as a second year student"

“One of the paid opportunities provided by Warwick is being a Student Ambassador for the Warwick Welcome Service. If you went to our Open Day yesterday, we are the people wearing the bright yellow t-shirts. I also applied to be a student blogger. I love talking about my life and writing is a way for me to de-stress.”
