Digital media work placements

Gain valuable work experience in the digital media industry and improve your future job prospects with a professional placement during your studies.

During your digital media degree, you’ll benefit from the strong industry links through our academics and dedicated careers advisers who will support you with your career journey, be it in motion capture, creative technology or virtual reality.

Our digital media degrees give you the option to go on a placement, which gives you great exposure to the fast-changing industry, new technology and time management skills when working on different projects. This in turn will boost your CV and future career prospects, as you’ll graduate with a year of work experience already under your belt. 

You’ll have a dedicated placement tutor from Brunel’s Professional Development Centre to support you with applying for your placement, right from when you start building your CV, attending interviews and until your placement is complete.

Work placements give you the opportunity to develop your professional, creative and project management skills in a working environment. Not only will you apply your learnings from your degree course, but you’ll learn to be digitally savvy, innovative and globally minded.

Taken in between your second and third year of studying, you’ll get an insight into your subject area, optional career paths and skills which can dramatically enhance your digital media graduate career chances.

You’ll be supported by your personal tutor and our Professional Development Centre before, during and after your degree. They’ll support you in identifying what type of opportunities you are looking to pursue, be it in visual effects for film and television, digital games, creative computing, brand design or immersive media.
