Work Experience Preparation Programme

Build your careers confidence with bespoke preparation activities to support your applications for Career Lab opportunities and beyond. The Work Experience Preparation Programme is a structured programme that includes relevant sessions and training to boost your confidence, understand your strengths and overcome imposter syndrome.

Get started

Create your own experience

Want to explore starting a side hustle, developing a freelance career or launching a new business or social enterprise? We can support you with advice and guidance, funding opportunities and helpful connections. Take your first step by booking an Entrepreneurship Exploration appointment with the team.

Taking part in opportunities

In year three you can apply to take part in all the opportunities listed above, but:

  • you can only participate in either the Winter or Spring Student Consultancy Programme
  • you can only accept a UK Summer Internship or an Online Global Summer Internship
  • you can take part in the Graduate Digital Accelerator or the Video Accelerator, if you have not already completed the course during your time at Sussex.

Disability support and reasonable adjustments

We have partnered with EmployAbility to provide disabled students, and students with neurodivergent, mental health and long-term health conditions, with individualised advice and support about adjustments for recruitment and the workplace, information about your rights, and support you with your applications.
