Work placements

Primary page content

Why do a work placement?

  • You can develop an array of personal and practical skills, which will be critical when you graduate
  • They give you the chance to reflect on and refine your career goals
  • They can bring a new dimension to your studies, enabling you to apply and evaluate classroom learning within the workplace
  • You'll develop a useful network of contacts

How can Goldsmiths help?

Many of our courses offer work experience placements and we also run regular careers fairs and networking events where you'll be able to meet companies who may be able to offer placements.

Our Careers Service can also help. They have a list of contacts they can put you in touch with, and can also check your CV before you make your application.

My work placement...was a fantastic opportunity that allowed me to bridge the coursework with applicable, transferable skills I was able to foster throughout my time there.
