Local Business Opportunities

For local businesses, hosting an international student can enhance and diversify a company at the same time as giving international students valuable experience.

Each year we work with local businesses to provide valuable work and cultural experiences to students and staff from European countries.

These experiences allow students from overseas to job shadow or train with a relevant organisation, giving local businesses the opportunity to exchange expertise and experience.

By hosting an international placement, you are opening your doors for yourself, your colleagues and your business.

If you are a local business interested in offering short term work placements to international students please fill in the form on this page and we’ll be in touch.

Why host a placement?

  1. Bring experience and insight from overseas
  2. Deliver opportunities to students from abroad
  3. Generate new ideas and best practice
  4. Develop your international networks
  5. Support professional development
