It provides excellent portfolio content where you can demonstrate how you have taken your learning and applied it in a real setting. This will ensure you have a professional portfolio and provides the extra engagement employers and universities want to see.  

Work experience can take a variety of forms such as work with an external company or work related experience working on live projects e.g. commissioned work from an internal or external client.

Your tutors will help and support you to find work experience however, you may wish to use your own contacts to secure your placement.
