If you are studying on a programme within the Business School, you have the opportunity to undertake a Professional Placement as an optional part of your degree. You spend the third year of a four year degree in a full-time, paid work placement with an employer. The University’s Career Development service will support you in finding suitable work placements and you will also receive tutorial support from an academic member of staff throughout the year. This is a very valuable opportunity. It contributes to your professional development by giving you experience of handling business and management issues in a real environment and adds to your employability prospects on graduation. You can register on the programme at the end of your first year.
