We believe real-life work experience is key to enhancing your career prospects. 

Our dedicated Placements team are on hand to help you secure a gem of a placement. You will be assigned a Placement Coordinator who can assist you throughout the placement search and application process. Make sure you engage with the team early to give you the best chance of securing your dream role.

We host lots of employer events, careers fairs and skills workshops for careers and placement support. 

The autumn term is our busiest time for events as this is when the majority of employers are keen to meet you. It also fits with deadlines for many placement and graduate opportunities!

For more information on the organisations attending and other careers events and workshops taking place, check out your events tab on Aston Futures.

Experience counts. Work experience gives you a competitive edge when you apply for placement and graduate roles, and offers an insight into the world of work. And that’s before you add in the benefits of money to see you through your degree, or an opportunity to help others.

The JobShop can help you find part-time or volunteering opportunities to help you with your career journey.
