Academic Placements

Academic placements for three month periods for students completing their undergraduate or graduate degrees, whose courses require work placements in organisations. Costs for placements are expected to be covered by the university degree course arrangements.

Master’s students whose courses require that they undertake specific projects, with structured outputs for assessment during their time working in the organisation. These projects are co-designed with the students where the focus is on the students area of interest primarily, but also on the needs of the organisation at the time.
