Finding Work: Placements and Work Experience 

A placement is an opportunity to gain valuable work experience as a part of your degree. The placement options that are available to you will depend on the course you study, however, all courses at MDX will allow you to complete some form of work experience in industry, both credit-bearing and non-credit bearing. Completing a work placement during your studies will give you a significant advantage when competing for graduate jobs. Many employers prefer to hire graduates with ‘real world’ experience and up-to-date industry knowledge which you can gain through a placement. The MDXworks team are here to help you find and secure a placement. Come and hear about how we do this through tailored 1:1 support!

2pm to 2.45pm
