Want to improve your employability skills by doing a work placement?
There are numerous opportunities to advance your employability throughout your student experience, such as:
- SPIN (Swansea Paid Internship Network) is a paid 4 week graduate level placement with one of a large variety of employers who work with the University. These are usually run over the summer period.
- The WoW programme (Week of Work) offers students at any level a 1 week, unpaid ‘tester’ placement within a wide range of organisations. On occasion this can be extended to 2 weeks.
- Santander funds two programmes at the University. Firstly, the ‘Santander Universities Work Placement Programme’ provides undergraduates with paid work experience for 1 month at a local SME over the summer break. Secondly, the ‘Santander Universities SME Internship Programme’ provides recent graduates with paid work experience for 3 months at a local SME. This can occur at any point in the year after graduation.
