Opportunities to work overseas
While most students undertake UK-based placements, there is the opportunity for School of Computing undergraduates to secure placements abroad. We regularly have students working in the US, Asia and continental Europe. UK and EU students who secure placements in the European Union are also eligible for a grant through the Erasmus scheme as well as language tuition in certain circumstances (subject to certain criteria).
In 2011 we started regular placements at Cisco Systems in California and each year a selected number of studens spend their placement year in Silicon Valley. We also partner with ectalent who provide US-based placements for our students.
