#helloBrookes 2017 - Earn while you learn

10:38 Guest Blogger 0 Comments


91.9% of Oxford Brookes graduates are in employment or further study 6 months after graduating.

(HESA Destination of Leavers 2017)

Why?

It probably has something to do with the fact that employers rate work experience as “the most important factor” in recruiting staff, and that at Oxford Brookes we have a network of high-quality employers who offer paid work placements that you can complete as part of your course.

Placements provide brilliant hands-on experience of the working world and give you the chance to build essential skills employers are looking for. In a crowded job market, Oxford Brookes can help you stand out.
