Optional Placement

The Placement module is taken by students in year two, once they have completed all other modules.

This placement module recognises the importance of professional experience for pursuing bespoke careers, and so provides the MSc students with the opportunity to apply learned concepts and toolkits into practice of their fields of specialism. You will learn on-the-job, highlight improvements in an organisation’s practices and make a contribution to chosen business projects.

The placement can either be full-time or part-time to a minimum of 3 working days (21-24 hours).

The placement will ideally be tailored to your interests and aspirations but ultimately meets the needs of employers. Whereas the roles offered may vary, the emphasis should be on securing a placement within promising growth areas of your discipline and, on both applying and developing existing knowledge and skills in the work place as well as gaining new knowledge and skills.

Placement Preparation Workshops will introduce you to the soft skills, the pitch and research skills needed to recruit and systematically prepare for a bespoke placement in a leading business organisation.
