At Ulster University Business School, we work closely with a wide range of employers, both locally and internationally, to provide high quality undergraduate and postgraduate placement opportunities to meet local, national, and international employer needs.
A quality work experience placement is pivotal in the development of a student’s future employability and provides the link between academic knowledge taught within the University framework, and its practical application within the workplace.
Work Placement Case Studies
Rose McGuigan, 3rd year Consumer Management and Food Innovation student
After enrolling on Ulster University’s new Enterprise Placement Year, Rose McGuigan, is pursuing her dream by opening ‘Bites by Rose’ - a bespoke baking business in her hometown of Cushendall.
“I have always loved baking, so the Enterprise Placement Year has presented me with the perfect opportunity to make my dream come true; and the fact that I can provide people in my local community with products they love and are keen to purchase is an added bonus.”
