Host a placement student

Could your organisation host a placement student? Find out more about what is involved below, including how you can benefit from helping our students to gain invaluable experience.

Placement units

Placements offer your organisation the opportunity to take on a student for approximately one day per week for a 12-week period. 

This forms part of our students' academic studies so they do not need to be paid.

Placement units are currently an optional part of our undergraduate programmes in the School for Policy Studies, School of Education and Department of Management.

How a placement student can benefit you

A placement student can undertake a small project or a series of projects during their time with you that utilises their social science skills and knowledge. 

What is involved

We provide preparation for the students and we then assess them on their placement experience.
