Digital Media Technology BSc(Hons): Work placement year

How you can work in industry during your course

This course is offered in both sandwich and non-sandwich modes. Work placements are actively encouraged as they expose students to a real working environment, which makes them more experienced and employable after their first degree. Work placements also enable employers to find employees for permanent positions.

KU Talent; the University's career service, has a specific team for the faculty that helps source industrial placements. Placement specialists within the KU Talent team help students throughout the application process, with support interviews and throughout the transition to work, for example; with mock interview sessions, CV workshops, careers fairs and industry speakers on employers' needs. The team monitors the student whilst in industry. Placement students are visited whilst in industry by a network of academics who act as individual placement tutors.
