UK Masters with Work Placements

Placements on UK Masters courses

A Masters course follows the successful completion of an undergraduate degree and many students choose to study a Masters in the UK due to the high quality of teaching, as well as the short period of time it takes to complete a postgraduate programme.

While a Masters often improves your job prospects, there is no guarantee it will help you secure your dream job when you are ready to begin full-time employment. However, research has shown that placements in the workplace – through internships or sandwich courses – gives students the extra advantage needed to win the job they have always aspired towards.

Different Types of Placements

There are a variety of different options available to students, some of which depend on the type of role and sector you are interested in. While some placements are paid, the majority are not and this will need to be considered before applying.

- Internships

Internships can last anywhere between six weeks to six months. Sometimes you will be pointed towards specific roles, or you will be expected to apply to different companies yourself.

- Placement Years

Many universities have integrated years that are a compulsory part of the programme and are tied closely to the subject you are studying.

- Sandwich Courses

More commonly found on undergraduate degrees, students will study full-time for two years, then take a year-long placement, followed by the final year of their course.
