    You need to contact companies and ask around. Of course we can't do this for you. Email or give them a ring and ask if they offer it, and if so how to apply. Make sure you have a good and up to date CV just in case they ask for one

    Work experience for what? If you're doing an academic degree you don't really need work experience and it can be difficult to get in some fields.

    It's perhaps a bit of a long shot.

    I wouldn't be too concerned. Some companies advertise opportunities, but it's very rare to have any sort of work experience before university. Your key focus should be on your grades to ensure they are sufficient to enter your chosen course, and making sure you're choosing the right degree, too.
