As part of your course, you will have the opportunity to gain practical experience, whilst earning, alongside your studies - through one of our placement schemes:
- One-year placement - These are taken after students have successfully completed their second year of studies; students work between nine and fifteen months on placement before returning to City to complete their final year
- Professional Pathway Scheme - This scheme is unique to City and offers students the opportunity to combine placement employment (and earnings) whilst studying.
We aim to produce well-rounded graduates who can take leading roles in the highly competitive IT profession.
