About international placements

Would you like to gain all of the benefits of a professional placement and valuable insights into working in a different country?

In the age of globalisation, an ‘international mindset’ is highly valued by employers in the UK and worldwide.

Immerse yourself in a different culture and brush up your language skills with an international placement.

If you are interested in working outside of the UK, we can help you. The world is a big place but our Placement Preparation Programme has advice on where to start looking, and our Going Global page has information on working in different countries.

What to do

Tell the Placements Team – and your academic adviser – that you are considering an International Placement as soon as you can.

Whether you are looking to work in an NGO or an investment bank, we can help you make sense of your international options.

If you would like international experience but don’t want to spend a whole year away from Brighton, there are lots of opportunities for shorter vacation internships overseas. We have strong links to organisations who provide internships in China, Japan and India.
