Want to work in Europe for a week in 2023?

International Marketing Week may be perfect for you!

26th October 2022

Would you like to work on real-life projects for a week in 2023, in a European city? We're offering you the chance to get involved in International Marketing Week. 

What is International Marketing Week?

International Marketing Week is a one-week international placement opportunity for students to visit one of our European partners and work on a live-brief.

Each of the partners each host a week at their University in Europe, where our students can join others from across Europe for a cultural and academic exchange to work on a real-life project.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students who'd like:

  • A chance to travel and meet new friends,
  • To gain CV-enhancing skills and experience,
  • To develop international communication skills,
  • To work with companies such as Mercedes Benz, Vienna Zoo or Lucas Bols.

Fees include the experience, accommodation and some meals and social events. There may also be some funding available for your trip.
