The programme:

The three-year Nestlé Academy Fast Start programme offers you the chance to combine university studies with practical experience in a global business. By the end of the programme, you’ll have well-developed commercial skills that will set you up for a rewarding career with us.

You’ll study for a BA (Hons.) degree in Professional Business Practice at Sheffield Hallam University and combine this with placements in a number of business teams. On completion, you’ll have developed the professional knowledge, a debt free degree and real career prospects with one of the biggest food manufacturers in the world.

In your first two years, you’ll enjoy work placements in a number of Nestlé business areas, including our HR, Sales, Marketing and Supply Chain functions. Alongside this commercial experience, you’ll have blocks of study in Sheffield. For your final year, you will specialise into a specific business area, based on your strengths and Nestlé’s business needs.

Entry requirements: You’ll need to have completed your A levels or equivalent within the last 2 years, with 300 UCAS points (minimum BBB grades) in three main subjects (predictions are also accepted), excluding General Studies and re-sits.
