Anthropology work placements

Take advantage of the opportunity to gain real-life work experience while you study.  

Brunel anthropology undergraduate courses offer you the unique possibility to undertake either two six-month placements or a year-long placement while studying.  

With support from your personal tutors and the Professional Development Centre, you choose where you complete your placements according to your own interests. Placements can be based at home or abroad. They range from supporting charities or development programmes to working in a museum or a school.   

Wherever you choose to undertake your placement, this invaluable experience will provide you with the opportunity to develop important skills, such as, project management, organisational awareness, and creative problem solving for the work place and beyond.   

Placements also offer you the possibility for exciting travel opportunities across the globe. No other anthropology programme in the UK that offers this. Previous students have completed placements in Guatemala, Cambodia, Malaysia, Colombia, Morocco among other places.
