We actively encourage our students to undertake placements. These vary from a term or year abroad, during which you can become immersed the culture and language of your chosen location, to academic placements carried out in one of your modules, to linked placements, allowing you to explore issues which connect to your seminar-room learning.
We also work with our Careers Service to help you find paid internships, including our new 'creative professional internships', designed to give you a head start in a career in the creative sector.

‘I will look back on my placement as an extremely positive experience as I have made friends and contacts now for the future that may help after my graduation in July. I have discovered another beautiful part of the country and I am currently writing up a report that includes all my combined experiences and reflects my enthusiasm for the academic placement I went on. I would recommend this opportunity to any student: it is not often you get this chance.’
‘Both of my placements gave me a clear picture of the working world and the media industry. I have understood the routes I need to go down to get to my chosen career. Alongside this, I have evidence of skills in so many different areas of work and the ability to write a professional report, all which I have obtained before leaving university!’
