…[the student] had the experience we were looking for; was friendly, cooperative and enthusiastic. I have been impressed by the level of organisation, the standards set and the facilities offered [by the department].”
Phil Taylor, Director, IT Managed Services
As part of all Masters Level courses within Edge Hill University students are strongly encouraged to complete a short work placement which sees them take their knowledge and skills into a business for mutual benefit. Each year many organisations benefit from taking one of our Masters students on a placement to either complete a short project or assist operationally.
The placement forms part of our Work Related Learning module which addresses relevant issues of employability, professional practice and ethics, and students must complete a minimum of 20 days during the period between May and September.
In previous years, businesses have offered placements to Computing students to get involved in:
- Software and database development
- Network installations and support
- Information security audits
- Project administration/management
- Digital marketing
…[student’s name] is great – thank you for your recommendation. Her attitute to work has been exemplary, she is keen to learn and is a pleasure to have in the office.”
Dave McTague, Director, Another Media
