Undergraduate and postgraduate students from a range of disciplines are available to take a placement, sometimes called a 'sandwich' year, which can last up to a whole year.
Placements are fixed-term contracts in a business area appropriate to the student's course and should provide development opportunities and scope for increasing responsibility.
They can also be linked to the student’s formal assessment, meaning that the student has to complete a piece of academic work during their placement which feeds into their final degree classification. In the more substantial placements, this assessment is often a piece of research, specified in collaboration with the employer, which can be of real value to the organisation.
During the placement, students receive full university support, including an academic supervisor.
We have students that can work in the following areas:
Science, maths, finance, marketing, business, management, environment, engineering, computing, product design, architecture and design, leisure, sports business management, health, pharmacy, teaching, hospitality and retail, media, fashion, and the arts.
