XLN creates career opportunities for local university students

XLN has collaborated with Sheffield Hallam University over the last five years to support its Computer Science curriculum and offer internships for students.

These internships have supported students in completing their degrees and led to real careers with XLN in Sheffield.

The company also participates in a second-year module for Computer Science students, called Professional Software Projects.

Michael Marriott, Senior Lecturer and Course Leader of BSc Computer Science and BSc Computer Science with AI, runs the course at Sheffield Hallam, said: “Our students then go to XLN for a year on placement before returning to complete their third year.

“Normally by the end of their year placement, before they come back to us, they've been offered a role as a graduate, so they can come back to their studies without worry, confident they can just focus on their studies rather than trying to find a job.”
