Why Do A Placement?

With over 95% of our courses offering a placement, we give you the opportunity to gain invaluable work experience alongside your degree. There are many benefits to doing a placement. A placement can allow you to: 

  • Increase your chance at securing a role.
  • Discover what you really enjoy in the world of work.
  • Earn money if you decide to do a paid placement.
  • Gain new perspectives on your career choices.
  • Develop key employability skills.

Please take a look at some of the companies that our students have completed their work placements at in previous years.
