You can tell it's an Aston student when they start talking about their experience on placement year. Jo Lopes, Jaguar Land Rover
A placement student is an affordable recruitment solution for your business. Aston work with organisations of all sizes, across all sectors, most of whom have enjoyed the benefits of taking a student on, and many companies go on to employ a succession of placement students year on year. Find out more about the services we offer for employers.
At Aston we recognise that enhancing our students‘ employability is key to this success which is why we strongly encourage our students to take a placement year, whether this be in industry or the professions in the UK, or studying abroad to gain other relevant work experience. Aston is one of only four universities in the UK where over 50% of students undertake an integrated placement year as part of their studies.
Aston University is a long term partner of CGI, and previously Logica, and has consistently provided confident, commercially aware and enthusiastic industrial placement students who have gone on to make a very positive impression in the business. Alexandra Sinton from Logica (CGI)
