Global Work Experience (D6001)

30 credits, Level 6

Autumn teaching

On this module, you'll gain practical work experience in an area of relevance to your degree. It will take the form of a period of work experience of a minimum of five weeks in Year 3. During this experience, you'll:

  • experience the practical aspects of work
  • contribute to your personal development
  • further develop skills needed in relations to employability beyond university.

You must be proactive in finding your own work experience provider. Registration on the module does not guarantee that work experience will be secured.

If you can't secure work experience, you can transfer to an alternative Year 3 module.
