The best way of proving you can do a job is to show that you’ve already got experience. That’s why we strongly encourage you to spend your third year on a Professional Placement. These are real, paid jobs with employers who want to develop you and your skills; you might even go back to work for them after graduating.
The Faculty has a Professional Placement Team who will help you find a suitable placement. By all means find a place for yourself but, to ensure that contact with companies is organised properly, you must contact the Placements team BEFORE approaching a company yourself. Remember any arrangements you have made privately must be approved by the Placements Team before they can be counted as an official placement.
