Thanks! Would you say it's better to call rather than email? What would I say on a phone call?

My school tell us to phone them just say ‘hi I’m student from (your school) and I’m interested in studying architecture and was wondering if I would be able to get work experience with your company for a few days’ and tell them that your school can sort out insurance for you to work there and what dates suit you. Good luck with getting work experience!

Heya!
I would recommend asking your teachers or career advisors about where you could get some work experience, perhaps they know someone :h: As stated above, another thing you can do is go to local companies and ask them for some work experience or shadowing. Personally, I wanted some lab experience and went to a local lab that let me shadow some workers there for a bit which was interesting :h: You could call them or go there in person and talk to reception explaining your situation and interest.

I hope this helps!
