Global Challenges work placements

First-hand professional experience through quality work placements and internships while you study.

As a Global Challenges student, we want to give you as much opportunity as possible to be work-ready when you leave. Work opportunities are not just a way to make some extra money during your studies; they’ll boost your CV and experience – giving you an advantage in the graduate market.

Regardless of the pathway you choose, placements are available and a key part of the course, allowing you to practically apply what is taught throughout a number of different industries. At Brunel you won’t be alone on your career journey; you’ll be supported by your personal tutor and our outstanding Professional Development Centre. Their expertise will be invaluable in finding a placement opportunity that is right for you.

As well as work placements, you’ll also have the opportunity to take part in a short summer internship after your first year. So, whether you have a dream role in mind or are still unsure, you’ll benefit from these work opportunities as they are not only a means of broadening your skills base and horizons, it’s also a fantastic chance to see if your future plans are right for you.
