Placement learning

During placements, students develop their practical skills, their reasoning and judgement and have the opportunity to reflect on employment practice. All periods of work placement which contribute to a programme’s learning outcomes are subject to the University’s policy on placements and study abroad.

There is a University Placements Forum, which brings together staff involvement in placement activity from across the institution. If you would like more information, please contact
