Whilst you are studying here at UoB, you can gain work experience, which will support you in your employability.
There are many ways to gain this experience, either through our programmes at UoB or with external organisations.
Remember, work experience does not have to be a full-time internship; it can be something which fits around your studies during term-time or during the holidays.
If working during term time, the University recommends that you only work 15 hours maximum per week to support you in balancing your studies with work.
