A work placement is a bridge between the academic and professional worlds, giving you contact with your future career while you are still studying. It is an excellent opportunity to apply the concepts learned in the classroom and acquire the skills you need to adapt successfully to the labour market.

All updated information regarding the specific organisation and regulations of work placements can be found in the Course Guide for the subject on each degree programme.
