At Southampton, you will have many opportunities to take up internships and work experience with leading companies.
We can help you source and apply for internships and work experience. Last year our students were offered placements and internships with L'Oréal, Ordnance Survey, Hampshire County Council, IBM and Oxfam.
There are many formats of internships, placements and work experience opportunities for you to access. For example, our exclusive Excel programme creates short-term placements lasting 4-12 weeks. Alternatively, our Business Innovation Programme offers year-long placements as part of a course or studying abroad.

From working for a year in industry to studying abroad, the benefits from taking a year out can be a valuable asset to your CV.
The University of Southampton delivers its own placement scheme, the Year in Employment, for eligible programmes which do not have in-built placement year opportunities.
Co-ordinated by the Placements team in the Careers and Employability Service, the Year in Employment is a fantastic opportunity to develop your personal and professional skills, providing an excellent foundation for building your career.
For more information, please see the Year in Employment website.
Year In Industry is a registered charity that works with hundreds of companies to help students in their gap year before starting university and during their placement year while they are studying.
You can benefit from competitive salaries, sponsorship and free training courses. Our Year in Industry office can be found in Building 16, Room 1037, University Crescent on Highfield Campus. You can contact the team by calling +44 (0)23 80 8059 2430, or by email.
