Module code


The aim of this module is to enhance your employability and digital literacy skills through reflecting on and gathering evidence of learning from an internship placement and by acquiring skills and knowledge to help you plan your career effectively.

It is important to graduate from university with more than just a degree, however it is not always easy to find time in a busy student calendar to gain appropriate work experience.

You will take part in a 30-hour work experience placement in either a university-sourced or self-sourced organisation. This module provides time in the academic calendar to complete the placement without it interfering with other modules or part-time work.

The Business Management Internship Module is led by the Careers Service, and will provide work experience alongside university study to further enhance employability and help you plan for your future.
