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 students with the opportunity to develop their business skills and to gain valuable work experience in their degree, which ensures that graduates with a placement are better prepared for work beyond the University. This module not only provides opportunities for a placement, but it prepares students for selecting, applying, and working in a placement. It also provides support with a dedicated Placement Advisor, and ensures that students consider their future professional development needs and career path.
