Swansea University provides a gateway to a bank of over 20,000 highly talented students and graduates to fill part-time vacancies, graduate roles and work experience placements.

Placements and Internships

Whether you want to develop the future of your organisation, or have a project you need completing, we have a work experience programme to suit your needs:

  • Week of Work
    Unpaid placements of up to 70hrs for short projects and taster experiences.
  • Funded Internships
    Short-term, extracurricular opportunities, ranging from two to ten weeks, that can run throughout the year and are offered on a full or part-time basis. Funding towards the salary of the student or graduate is available.
  • Placements as part of a course
    From final-year projects to work experience modules, most of our students will have industry experience as part of their course. These are usually short-term, part-time projects managed in collaboration with a course supervisor.
  • Year In Industry
    Many of our courses offer students a year in industry as part of a degree programme. This typically sits between the second and final year of an undergraduate degree. These placements are course-specific and relate to a student’s degree discipline.

We arrange placements and internships for students and graduates with wide-ranging career aspirations from all disciplines and all levels.

Graduate roles and part-time vacancies

Over 5000 students graduate from Swansea University each year so whether you have graduate opportunities based in Wales, the UK or worldwide, we can help you find the right candidate for your organisation.

Furthermore, alongside their studies our students are always on the lookout for suitable part-time jobs to supplement their income and help them gain experience so if you have a vacancy you'd like to share we can help.

Contact us today to discuss how our talented students and graduates can make a difference in your organisation.  Alternatively, if you already have a position you'd like to fill you can advertise your vacancy on our digital jobs board.
