All you need to know about placements

The advantages of doing a placement are endless! By gaining professional experience, you’ll develop crucial skills that employers look for in their recruits and have the opportunity to put the theory you are learning in your degree into practice. It will also be extremely helpful to you in your career decision-making process and you’ll be able to network, meet people in the industry and potentially secure a job offer for when you graduate. By doing a placement, you’ll stand out against other graduates when it comes to securing your first graduate role.

We have an extensive network of contacts across many industries. The following is a small selection of the companies who have taken our students on placement in the past – you can find out about employers specific to your area of interest on our individual course pages.
