Glyndwr University Work Experience

Gaining Experience

All our courses are jam-packed with opportunities to gain hands-on experience in your field of study.

This could be through using the University’s extensive facilities tailored to the courses we offer, through work placements, or through opportunities to enter competitions or showcase your work in exhibitions and performances. Creating opportunities which will enhance employability is always at the forefront of our thinking when we design our courses.

In addition, our Careers and Zone service is able to help you access work experience, part-time jobs and volunteering opportunities in order to expand your experience, make new contacts and develop valuable skills, all of which are essential to help you get your foot in the door of your chosen graduate career path.


Through our ADOR programme, Careers and Zone offer a variety of skills development opportunities and learning activities, along with one-to-one mentoring from project support workers.

Recent student projects have included:

  • Supporting ARCH Initiatives to create a community wellbeing garden alongside countryside ranges in Flintshire
  • Producing a festive theatre lunch for residents of a local nursing home
  • Documenting the construction of the new North Wales prison in a legacy book
  • Producing creative work to a client’s brief with Wrexham Maelor Hospital
