Work experience allows you to demonstrate to future employers that you have a range of relevant employability skills (such as communication skills, IT awareness, business awareness and teamwork), as well as providing evidence on your CV that you have real life work experience to let you stand out from other applicants.

The links below have information about the range of work experience available, and how employers provide short term opportunities, such as insight days, to give students a glimpse of working life.  We also have information about making the most of volunteering and part time work, with specialist information for Masters students.
