Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

A period of work experience is a requirement in your second year of study. We encourage our students to think of themselves as versatile practitioners, able to adapt to the ever-changing contemporary market. The focus throughout level 5 is to identify markets for your interests, develop a personal direction with tutorial guidance, and establish external contacts. This requires a resourceful and enterprising attitude, a sense of ambition, and confidence based on self-reliance. The Professional Practice module is the basis for recognising these qualities, as well as preparing students to promote and present themselves professionally through CVs, and portfolio preparation.

Graduate with invaluable work experience alongside your degree and stand out from the crowd.  

This course offers you the opportunity to enhance your study and CV with a work placement sandwich year. It’s a chance to explore career possibilities, make valuable contacts and gain sought after professional skills.  

Our dedicated Careers and Employment team are here to help guide you through the process.

If you take up a work placement between your second and third year of study, at the University of Hertfordshire you’ll pay no tuition fee for this year. We’ll ask you to make your decision in your second year, so there is plenty of time to think about it.
