Did you know that only 50% of all UK graduates are working in a field related to their degree after leaving university? The Industry Insight Programme will help you improve your skills and find out more about multiple sectors and employers in an external setting.
Apply for an Industry Insight if you want to:
- Broaden your knowledge of industries and related sectors
- Gain confidence to approach professionals with questions about working in their roles
- Begin to develop your professional network
- Gain application and interview practice
- Help inform your future academic progression and career choices
Students can begin to view and apply for Industry Insight opportunities on CareersHub from 3rd October 2016. Industry Insights will take place throughout the entire academic year, through August 2017. The peak of Industry Insight opportunities will be in the Spring term. Whilst we aim to source industry insights to cater for all schools and represent all sectors, please be aware that the insights planned and the number of available spaces will depend on the availability and capacity of the host company.
Most Industry Insights will be sourced within the Greater London area, but they may also be available with companies outside of London. If an Insight will take place outside London you will need to consider your own travel arrangements before applying.
The Industry Insight Programme is open to all current students. Students from Widening Participation backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
