Most of our courses offer you the opportunity to do a year-long placement in industry. Past students have undertaken placements with companies such as Hewlett-Packard (HP), Airbus UK and BMW.

If you are on a tier 4 visa and are approved to undertake a one year work placement, you will be granted a longer visa that includes the work placement.
