Employers appreciate the skills and knowledge that graduates bring to organisations from academic study. However, employers increasingly value graduates who have undertaken a substantial placement as part of their degree. A structured placement provides you with the opportunity to develop your business skills and to gain valuable work experience in your degree, which ensures that upon graduating with a placement you are better prepared for work beyond the University. This module not only provides opportunities for a placement, but it prepares your employability skills and professional profile ready for the application process and the practical experience. It also provides support with a dedicated Placement Advisor, and ensures that you consider your future professional development needs and career pathways.
