Work experience describes the situation where an individual (eg: a student) spends a short period of time at the University to experience what it is like to work for us.
The main objectives of work experience placements are:
- For the person to gain an insight into the world of work
- For the person to gain an insight into the industry
- For the person to gain additional skills
- To help the person make decisions about his or her future
