how our students can benefit your organisation

A  Languages or Social Sciences placement student would be a real asset to your organisation - bringing with them an intelligent and fresh approach to the workplace. Don't just take our word for it  - our graduates were recently rated as one of the UK's most employable by the Times Good University Guide.

An Aston University placement student will:

  • Be two years into their degree programme with a good grounding in their subject
  • Have the knowledge and skills base to undertake a range of specific projects
  • Bring new ideas, enthusiasm and commitment to your workplace
  • Have well-developed communication, research and presentation techniques.

Our students, particularly those studying a modern language, are often keen to take their placement year abroad.
With this in mind, the contributions they will make to your organisation could include:
  • Knowledge of UK market and culture
  • English language skills
  • Translation skills for French, German and Spanish.


What are the benefits?

  • An efficient and cost effective way to recruit good quality graduates 
  • A placement student can provide a temporary resource for time-limited project work, without any long-term commitment
  • Gain an extra resource with innovative new ideas 
  • Raise the profile of your organisation on campus
