In 2015-2016 the Hub for Innovation and Enterprise offered a project placement to one student who created and edited a promotional series of short films about entrepreneurship at the University of Kent. The student was awarded a payment of £450 for completing the work. The student who undertook the placement said “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support I have received from the team. I had a great time making the videos and later editing them!"

In 2016-17, the Hub provided one student with work experience in event planning.
