UG Handbook - Placement Year

Almost any student can apply to undertake a Placement Year. This offers you the chance to gain valuable work experience at a challenging level that will help prepare you for graduate jobs. This would be an additional year, which you would take between your second and third year of study, and you would be supervised by the Careers and Placements team for the duration of this year. You will need to find and secure your own placement and Careers and Placements can help you through the selection and approval process.
