The GO Wales Achieve Through Work Experience project helps students develop their employability skills, build confidence and create networks and contacts within areas of career interest; increasing chances of obtaining graduate-level employment upon leaving Wrexham Glyndŵr University. 

Working one-to-one with an advisor, we explore the best options for work experience opportunities within your area of interest and study.

All placements are completely tailored to fit you, your life, studies and other commitments.
