Professional training

All of our undergraduate degrees offer the optional professional training placement. We provide dedicated support to help you find and apply for a placement position, as well as visits during your placement to make sure you are gaining the experience you need in a supportive environment.

Not only will you gain valuable experience in a real job, we find that placement students return with much improved time and project management, communication and team work skills. This is demonstrated through focussed study and determination to achieve good degrees.

Further details of the support we provide can be found in the Professional Training placement pages.
