If you are studying a programme which includes a ‘sandwich year’, you will have an opportunity to apply for placements throughout your second year.
Your placement year will be an opportunity for you to apply the academic knowledge you have learnt at university and help you to gain industry experience to support your employability upon graduation.
It is your responsibility to be pro-active and apply for placement opportunities, as the placement jobs market is very competitive. We recommend that you start researching companies and opportunities during your first year and apply for positions from the start of your second year.
Follow the links below to find a range of resources to help you find a placement.
