LIS work placements

Real jobs, real value

Each year you will complete structured placements with some of the UK’s most prestigious employers and exciting start-ups.

This isn’t a regular placement. You’ll help these organisations improve their impact on society. You’ll build a network across a range of sectors, develop an idea of where you want to focus and get paid while doing it.

A new approach to learning

LIS work placements - KPMG

We get thousands of graduate CVs each year and it’s so much more powerful for someone to show that they’ve done it than to say that they can. This is where LIS can really help us.

Earn up to £3k every year

Each year, as well as 26 weeks of teaching, you will complete 10-weeks of paid placements placements with our internship partners.

Placements are fully integrated into the course curriculum so not only will you be paid to put your learnings into action but you will also leave LIS with 30-weeks of real-world experience on your CV.

Partner organisations

Organisations across all industries and of all sizes require the brightest minds to tackle some of the global challenges that we face as a society.

This is why we have partnered with a diverse range of organisations from the top graduate employers (McKinsey, Virgin, KPMG) to high-growth disruptors (Funding Circle, Frontline) and purpose-led start-ups (Toast, AllPlants)
