Careers & Placements


There’s never been a more important time for students to gain relevant work experience to improve their career prospects. According to High Fliers, the graduate research group, ‘graduates without work experience will struggle to get jobs no matter how good their grades’. Its survey of graduate employers found that one in three graduate posts are filled by people who have previously worked for that company as an intern.

Many SEPnet students have gained further work experience or graduate jobs with their placement organisations or other graduate employers.

“The SEPnet scheme has been incredibly valuable to us. I had a number of excellent applicants for the post and overall experience was very positive. I will definitely be working with SEPnet in future years to take advantage of this scheme again.”

– Phil Edwards, Director, Weald Technology Ltd

“We got the chance to welcome four SEPnet students over the past 3 years and each of them has exceeded my expectations, generating outstanding work, helping us, in some cases, to shape aspects of our research interests. The SEPnet team is extremely efficient, friendly and very professional and I would highly advise any company to engage with them to leverage the tremendous technical skills of their students.”

– Pierre Moinier, Lead Engineer, BAE Systems
