How it works

You will complete in-company work placement on a full-time basis in semester two of year four of the Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Management.

Under the Bologna Process and the subject's continuous assessment method, work placement is divid-ed into three phases:

    We will help you acquire the necessary knowledge to look for and secure work experience or employment at a company. We deliver sessions aimed at helping you successfully transi-tion to the job market. 
    An important stage in building a career.
  2. "During" work placement phase:
    Your tutors –one at the University and another at the company– will further develop your skills and attitudes.
    During this phase we will monitor how you progress in terms of your role and the responsi-bilities you take on at the company.
  3. "After" work placement:
    This is the time when you show us everything you have learned. During this phase you will submit a "Work Placement Report", which will be assessed by lecturers from the Faculty of Business Administration and Management.

Regulations

The regulations governing In-Company Work Placement are as follows:

  • It is an optional subject and may only be taken during year four of the Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Management.
  • You will complete the placement on a full-time basis during the second semester.
  • Work placement may not be taken at the same time as any other subjects during the second semester.
