The placement module allows you gain valuable experience working in a relevant organization in the public or non-profit sector. You will have the opportunity to apply and reflect on the knowledge and skills you have gained in the first year of the MPA and gain important insights concerning the workings of the public and non-profit sectors. Most placements will be in the Hampshire region or the London area. Students may arrange their own placement, drawing on the resources and contacts of the PAIR and SSPC Departments. Interviews may be required by some employers before the placement is approved. The minimum length of a placement is 10 weeks (full-time). Most placements last 12 weeks (full-time).
