Sandwich Year (Creative Arts)
Work placements are actively encouraged, with a dedicated 'professional practice' module during Level 5 that prepares students for taking on internships and placements. Course tutors have numerous high-profile links with industry and we often place students within these prominent businesses, as well as drawing on others within London and our local region. Students can either conduct placements as part of a taught module, or during non-taught weeks, or by taking the Sandwich Year option.
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. Our students are currently on, or have recently completed year-long placements with Urban Outfitters, The Body Shop, Disney, River Island, Ocado as well as many smaller design studios. The University also offers a ‘self-employed’ placement year which helps students set up their own practice.
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.
