Work Experience (Route A):  For Extra-Curricular Placements & Internships

The Work Experience Route A activity enables Queen’s students to gain accreditation for graduate career-relevant; self-organised work placements of 100 hours or more.  

These work experiences will involve the candidate successfully negotiating a formal application and selection process in order to gain the post/place.  The actual work experience will be intensive, entail responsibility for others/delivery of a professional project; will require the student to work as part of a professional team towards agreed goals within specified deadlines.  It will also challenge the student to apply the transferable and/or subject specific skills developed as part of their degree into a work context that demonstrates their ability to make a successful transition into a graduate job role in the near future.

In order to qualify for accreditation, students must:

  1. Familiarise yourself with the requirements for this activity by reading this page in full and/or email any questions to degreeplus@qub.ac.uk
