Placements and work experience
Placements are open to all students in the department.
Short placements and work experience can take place in level 2 and level 3 during Summer and Easter time.
Students can undertake a year long placement in either level 2 or level 3. Support is given for you to secure your own opportunities as well as apply for those secured by the department.
Although placements are usually 2 weeks long in each year, with a total of 4 weeks at the end of the year we encourage students to look for as much as experience as possible.
Optional placements for MSc Urban and Regional Planning students take place during vacation periods, these usually last 1-2 weeks. Support is given for you to secure your own opportunities or apply for those secured by the department.
There are plenty of other opportunities available to students in the department, including:
Internships and work experience
The Placements team are dedicated to communicating exciting opportunities such as summer internships, work experience and graduate jobs to students, no matter which of our courses they study.
Degree with employment experience
Undergraduate students have the chance to take a year out in a relevant industry of their choice. We advertise these opportunities when they arise.
