Courses with industrial/professional experience

Clarify your career objectives and gain a real advantage in today’s competitive employment market with an industrial or professional placement built into your undergraduate degree at Manchester.

An undergraduate degree with industrial or professional experience will give you valuable insight into the world of work in an industry directly related to your subject - and could help to secure you a graduate position after your degree.

At Manchester we have excellent relationships with a huge range of graduate employers, across the UK and overseas, who offer industrial and professional placements to our students.

Many of our undergraduates report returning to the final year of their degree courses after a year in industry with renewed passion for their subject and a greater appreciation of how it can be applied to effect real change in the world.

You might even receive a salary during your placement, so you can earn while you learn.
