    Students on a three-year single honours programme at undergraduate level will benefit from undertaking a year-long placement between Stages Two and Three of their study. These placements provide invaluable experiences for those who meet the entry criteria, allowing them to apply their learning and prepare for their future career path. We offer support to help you find the right placement to suit you, whether it be based in the UK or overseas.
