Employability

Brunel has a long tradition of developing students who employers want to recruit because we have placed great importance on integrating work skills and experience into our courses.

The graduate employment market is becoming increasingly competitive so developing skills and links with employers will give students a great head-start in finding the graduate job that they want.

Many of Brunel's courses offer the opportunity to do a thick or thin sandwich placement.

  • A thick sandwich course means undertaking a one-year placement in the third year and then returning for the final year of study.
  • A thin sandwich course means undertaking one six-month placement at the beginning of the second year and one six-month placement at the end of the third year and then returning for the final year of study.

Read about student experiences on Student Stories.

Even if the course does not offer a formal sandwich placement, students will still find opportunities to undertake shorter placements. Links with industry and the professions will feature highly in the students teaching and learning experience.
