INTRA Work Placement

All students go on work placement for six months during their third year. This placement, known as the "INTRA" (INtegrated TRAining) programme, integrates academic study with closely related jobs. This will give you an understanding of the professional and practical business world, and help you to stand out in the graduate employment market.

In nearly all cases, students on work placement are paid. The University's INTRA Office works to find suitable placement companies for students, but students may also arrange their placement in a place of their choosing. Some students elect to do their placement abroad, typically in the U.K. or U.S.A., but anywhere is possible.

In previous years we had students on placement in:

  • Singapore
  • Boston
  • New York
  • Washington
  • Connecticut
  • Massachusetts
  • Sussex
  • Aachen (Germany)
  • Maastricht (The Netherlands)
  • Stirling (Scotland)
  • Hyderabad (India)

An indication of the kind of companies with which our students have undertaken their work placement is given in our INTRA company list.
