Edinburgh Napier University proudly offers work placement opportunities for Undergraduate students in their third year of study in many of its courses.
These work placement opportunities provide students with invaluable first-hand experience that boosts job prospects and gives students a taste of what is to come after life at University.
Edinburgh Napier University offers placements with highly regarded organisations around the world and with well-known Scottish landmarks and events including The Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Castle and the Edinburgh International Festival.
Students use these experiences to build their professional network and develop key employability skills. For international students, it’s fantastic for them to not only gain the skills the work placement provides, but also so that they have something to set them apart on their Resume when they return home after studies. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“Without having a placement during my degree, I would not have been able to gain graduate employment with one of the top 100 graduate employers”
“Before the placement, I didn’t know what I wanted to do after my degree…. Now, I am not only more confident where I want to be, I have been offered a graduate position with my placement employer!”
“My learning from placement exceeded my expectations – I really enjoyed and benefited a lot from working in a professional, dynamic environment”
The work placements, the teaching, the facilities and the learning environment at Edinburgh Napier University are well recognised. As a result, the Guardian ranks Edinburgh Napier as the #1 University for Nurturing Student Talent in the UK.
