Employers put work experience at the top of their wish list when they recruit graduates. As one of our students, we can help you get work experience that will make you stand out from the crowd.
If you’re under 25, based in Wales and studying 60 credits or more, GO Wales may be able to help you find work experience which matches your ambitions.
GO Wales will help you to:
When you feel ready, Go Wales will organise work experience for you.
GO Wales will find you work experience, to fit with your everyday commitments. Opportunities can last for a single day or up to twenty days.
We pay your expenses and sort out any adjustments you need.
We may be able to offer you a 'virtual' placement, where you will be able to get experience while working from home.
This internships scheme puts employers in touch with OU students and recent graduates for four to eight weeks.
We’re just one of several universities working in the Cardiff Capital Region to help local employers find graduates.
We’re always looking to put our students in touch with employers. Instead of being based at the workplace, you'll work online from home in the same way as you study as an OU student. Just like an internship at a workplace, you'll work on projects and tasks given to you by an employer and have regular catch-ups and support from them.
