LHR 2017 is our activity-packed, five-day work experience scheme. Join us, and see first-hand how we run the world’s busiest two-runway airport, keeping 75 million travellers moving, and the UK economy growing. You’ll see a variety of our experts in action, from dedicated security and engineering teams to behind-the-scenes specialists across Heathrow. You’ll take tours of our airside and landside operations, police station and control tower. And as you explore Heathrow, we’ll ask you to prepare a presentation with your team for your final day.

Across the year we offer three work experience programmes:

  • 13th-17th February
  • 10th-14th July
  • 9th-13th October

We only have a limited number of places, so we’re looking for the most enthusiastic and ambitious students, currently studying in years 10 to 13.


The application for the next work experience session, which will take place from 9th to 13th October, will be open in September.
