One of Brunel’s distinctive features is the inclusion of work experience placements within our programmes. Many courses offer a one-year block of work experience (a ‘thick-sandwich’ course) or in some cases two six-month periods (a ‘thin-sandwich’ course). Placements are usually paid and some students are even offered permanent employment after they graduate. You may be able to apply for a Placement Bursary if your Placement is unpaid. Courses which do not offer sandwich placements often include a work experience module so you can still gain experience before you graduate.

Brunel was named ‘Best Placement Service’ by and had won the accolade of ‘University with a Forward thinking Attitude to Work-Based Learning’. We also received a Matrix Excellence award, a quality standard for information advice and guidance services.
