Work with our student talent
Giving our students relevant experience is a critical component of our courses. It also provides opportunities for arts and cultural organisations. Placement students can bring many advantages to your business, whatever its size. Students are work-ready with well-developed skills, and can add real value to your projects.
Taking placement students can also be an efficient recruitment solution as you may end up offering them a permanent graduate job. This can considerably reduce your recruitment costs and efforts.
