The University of Southampton Business School has been awarded the prize of Best University Placement Service at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards.
Students on every undergraduate course at Southampton Business School have the option of taking a year-long placement as part of their degree, providing a valuable opportunity to apply their learning to ‘real world’ situations and develop transferable skills useful for their future career. The Business School’s placements team builds connections with employers and provides dedicated support to students, enabling them to gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in today’s competitive job market.
Rob Jack, Placements Team Leader for the Southampton Business School, said: “Placements have a hugely positive impact on the student experience and employability, so we hope this award may encourage more of our talent to take up placements as part of their course."
My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
