The main thing I learnt on placement was never to be afraid to ask. Everyone you ever work with had to start off somewhere.Imogen Slinn, MEng Chemical Engineering
Professional Training placements
All of our undergraduate courses offer Professional Training placements, which involve taking time out of studying to work in industry. You can do a placement here in the UK or you have the option to do your placement abroad.
Professional Training is about providing you with “real world” experience so that you are prepared for life after graduation. The placement usually takes place in the penultimate year of undergraduate study.
