Placements can play an important role in putting you ahead of the competition and securing your first job. There are different forms of placements, from two-week projects to year-long paid placements.
Many of our degree programmes offer you the opportunity to take a placement year in a company during your course. This experience is invaluable. Students who take advantage of a placement year often find it gives them the edge in the jobs market and it also helps them to achieve a better grade of degree.
Shorter bite-sized placements also offer great experience and can still have such an impact, even in a short space of time. We work with some of the country's leading companies and organisations to ensure that each placement meets the expectations of you and the employer.
It's never too soon to start your placement journey. Most students take a year-long placement after completing their 2nd year but with shorter, bite-sized placements the opportunities can flexible.
Each of our Faculties organises placements for its students. For more information and to find out how to apply for a placement get in touch with the contact in your faculty:
