Work Placement & Volunteering

Students under the age of 18 are unable to work in the UK.  However, we help our students to find work placement and volunteering programmes whenever possible to support their UCAS applications.

In addition, students can take part in weekend career experience programmes run by our Dukes Education partner InvestIN, which take place on Sundays during term-time.  Nineteen different career experiences are offered in the following fields:

  • Medicine
  • Law
  • Investment Banking
  • Engineering
  • Psychology
  • Forensic Science
  • Software Engineering
  • Art
  • Architecture
  • Dentistry
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Fashion
  • Filmmaking
  • International Development
  • Journalism
  • Politics
  • Vet
  • Video Game Design
  • Writing

Further two, three and four week programmes held over the summer are available at an additional cost.  For more information go to
