The School offers a variety of placements which provide you with both work experience and personal development, and making you more attractive to prospective employers.

Language Placements

Students on some of the undergraduate language courses spend at least two semesters abroad, and undertake placements in two separate countries (unless studying English as a Foreign Language) . Students may choose to study at one of our many academic partner institutions, take a work placement or undertake a combination of both. In order to gain work experience students have access to a comprehensive network of industrial placements, many of which are paid.

Translation and Interpreting placements

Students on the postgraduate courses in Translation and Interpreting can benefit from translation placements in translation companies, and have the possibility of spending time at the UN offices to shadow staff interpreters.
