We support students to make links with industry and undertake optional work placement or study abroad options.


Our connections with many of the UK’s best design agencies and professional photographers mean you’ll be work-ready when you graduate.


In your final year, you’ll exhibit your work at our annual Degree Show and national graduate showcases in London– a great way to meet potential employers.

Edinburgh-based StudioLR sponsors a best in show prize at the University’s Degree Show, with the winner not only getting recognition on the night but the chance to go and work with the agency for a month. Local agencies also offer mentoring and placements throughout the year. We also have strong links with heavyweight agency Design Bridge in London, which has so far employed six of our graduates.
