Gain invaluable work experience and explore your career options by undertaking a placement or year of professional experience during your studies*.
Placements offer an exciting opportunity to enhance work-related skills and develop a network of contacts, as well as strengthening career prospects and cultivating direct experience in a potential career field.
*Programmes with a Professional Placement Year (also known as 'Year in Industry' or 'Placement Year') are fully dependent on students securing their own placement opportunity, normally through a competitive recruitment process. The University provides dedicated career and application support for placement year students.
Students who do not secure a placement or who are unable to complete the placement year due to extenuating circumstances, have the option to transfer to a three-year variant of their programme with agreement from their school/department.
