"Placements prepare you for the workplace and it’s interesting to see all of the things you learn in your university blocks come to life when you are on your work placement.”
Jessica Alcock, Diploma of Higher Education Operating Department Practice, placement at Poole Hospital, 2016
Placements are a vital part of courses within the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences and help you prepare for work in challenging and exciting environments. We understand that you may have questions about undertaking placements in this sector. There is placement information specific to each course on the individual course pages.
