Post GCSEs/Pre-A-Level Work Experience in the Summer - Ideas?Watch
So i figured as there's an extra long summer and i'll have nothing better to do, that i should take on some summer work experience - but unsure as to what i'd like to do exactly! I already completed 2 weeks work experience at a games studio in Cambridge, which was great and i thoroughly enjoyed it. I would like to eventually go on to university to complete a degree in Computer Science, probably specialising in cyber security - i'm just slightly concerned that doing another lot of work experience at a games studio would maybe look a bit childish, although it did help with my computer science skills (e.g I gained experience in test plans)
If anyone has any suggestions regarding where i could go to, it would be very appreciated. I live in the East Of England, so please don't suggest anywhere particuarly far away - I would be willing to travel however, as i know places like London or Cambridge (or even Ipswich's Adastral Park) would have lots of opportunities.
I'm predicted an 8 in computer science and mostly 6/7s in my other subjects (with one 5 and one 8), hopefully this will change after the next set of predicted grades come out as i believe i will have improved. Hopefully this would give me a better chance, as i've also competed in international robotics competitions etc.
Many thanks in advance.
[TLDR]: Need help in finding work experience that would look good for a high ranking university such as Cambridge or York. Wanting to study Computer Science (BSc/BEng) possibly with cyber security.
