English work placements

We value helping you make the best choices for your career journey and our work placement opportunity is a big part of this.

Our undergraduate courses come with the option for a one-year work placement. This is an invaluable opportunity to build your confidence in a variety of work settings and see which future career is right for you. We’ll support and encourage you every step of the way whether you want to gain publishing experience or see what life as a copywriter in a busy marketing department is like.

Your CV is one of the most important pieces of writing you’ll ever do and our expertise can help make you stand out. You’ll be supported by your personal tutor and our Professional Development Centre before, during and after identifying what type of opportunities you are looking to pursue. In preparation for work placements there are also plenty of opportunity for work experience. You can volunteer at one of our many events like the Hillingdon Literary Festival, Shakespeare week or Liberated Libraries or become a paid student ambassador for your course – all great ways to top up your CV experience.

You’ll also get to hear from and interact with published writers, renowned poets and industry experts through our Brunel Writers series. Not only will you benefit from analysing their work and thoughts, it’s a great opportunity to network and hear first-hand experiences of what it takes to make it in the creative industries.
