Student Placement Opportunities with Salford Business School
At Salford Business School, student placements are offered as part of both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Our links with local, national and international companies means that we can offer students the opportunity to get in touch with prospective employers and get students on the right track to future employment success.
A paid internship can be an IT placement in London or a business management placement in Edinburgh, if you have the passion and commitment to secure a placement, it could be the best thing you ever did.
Paid internships abroad
Working on a placement abroad can be within your reach. One of the great things about doing a placement is, as long as it is relevant and approved by the school, you can go anywhere. Students have been on placements at home in Manchester to as far away as Australia. So if you have ever dreamed of working abroad, this is your chance!
Mentor your way to success
Mentoring other students can be a most rewarding and beneficial experience. Once students have completed their year in industry, students have the opportunity to mentor other students looking to undertake a placement, which also looks great on your CV! Here’s what Salford Business School placement mentors have to say about their mentoring experiences:

Placement students at Salford, upon completion of their sandwich year, have typically performed better in their degree and have much better job prospects after graduating. Many of our placement graduates go on to secure a job with that same organisation.
Alongside these benefits, students become more confident, gain communication and problem solving skills and develop transferable skills that can’t be gained elsewhere.
