Collaboration opportunities

Research collaborations with industrial and government agencies.

We work with commercial partners ranging in scale from SMEs to multinationals. We collaborate with companies from across a broad range of sectors including manufacturing, information systems, software technology, healthcare, finance and energy production.

These collaborations range in scope from industry studentships where companies support the research and training of a PhD student, to full-scale collaborative research programmes involving staff embedded within academic research groups.

We can help match up your requirements with the research expertise, facilities and support needed to achieve your commercial objectives.

Graduate recruitment opportunities

We are keen to build close relationships with industry and government organisations, including in providing graduate opportunities for our students. In many cases, the relationship between a student and a future employer may start through a student project, internship or sponsored studentship. Our business development team will be pleased to discuss such opportunities.

The University’s Careers Service provides a range of opportunities for employers to engage with prospective graduates and these may be customised to an individual employer’s requirements. These channels have the potential to reach all the University’s student population or targeted groups.

Information for employers

Employers with whom the School of Informatics has a particularly close relationship may be offered additional opportunities to engage with the School’s undergraduate, taught postgraduate and research students. These opportunities are strictly limited and are reserved to organisations with which the School has an established relationship across multiple points of engagement.

Our business development team has experience of working with organisations to best understand their goals and may be able to offer options for student engagement that may not have been previously considered.
