Work Placements

All Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences students can include a work placement year as part of their course. Our current students are working at many different companies in the UK and overseas including Queens Park Rangers Football Club, the London Sports Trust and Quiksilver.

We encourage all students to undertake a placement as research shows that these students secure better grades in their final year and earn significantly more upon graduation.

The main objective of the work placement is to give Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences undergraduates an opportunity to apply their knowledge of theory to practical problems in real-life situations. In this way the relevance of the theory becomes more apparent and often the application of knowledge leads to a deeper understanding of the theory itself.

At Brunel we provide many opportunities and experiences within your degree programme and beyond – work-based learning, professional support services, volunteering, mentoring, sports, arts, clubs, societies, and much, much more – and we encourage you to make the most of them, so that you can make the most of yourself.
