The airport is a diverse, fast paced and truly exciting workplace and we have great pleasure in inviting numerous students to join us for an action packed week each year.
The 2018 Programme
The 2017 programme is now closed.
For 2018 programme will offer two programmes: Travel and Tourism and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
Both programmes are mainly observational, however students may be assigned small projects (information gathering and research, written pieces etc) to help them gain an understanding of how the departments work together to make the airport operate. This will give students plenty of time to ask questions, and an understanding of some of the many varied roles that are available at East Midlands Airport.
