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 an (optional) placement module.

These are often in collaboration with our Careers Service, meaning you will get the support of a placement coordinator to find a placement. They also run events, such as the careers fair, and CV check appointments. 

Many departments also have industry contacts that can help secure a placement.
