Minds Underground Work & Research Experience
Through our 700+ strong team of mentors, MU has gained contacts across a wealth of fields and industries. We have organised a variety of experiences, from an engineering placement at WSP, to charity & theatre work with Shakespeare Schools, a research assistant project in a Psychologist’s lab and shadowing of a tech entrepreneur. Due to COVID-19, all research placements will now be online. Gain a close insight into degree subjects and potential careers with specialists in your field of interest.
