When you have found a placement

This article contains five steps to take once you have found a placement

The following steps are necessary, in order for your placement to be approved. For full information on placements, please visit our Careers and Employment website.

1) Email 

To let us know about your placement by the deadline for your course. You should include your job description, offer letter and/or contract. Once we have this information, we will start the approval process.

2) We will email you with your next steps

These include uploading details of your placement onto the Experience tab on Handshake. 

3) We will conduct a Risk Assessment for your placement

We will contact you to conduct a Risk Assessment for your placement.

4) We will ask you to sign a Placement Agreement Letter 

This letter is signed by the University, your employer and you as the student. 

5) Await confirmation of approval

The Placements team will then email to confirm that your placement has been approved. Please see the full content of the email, as it contains details of where to find your placement module information and future School contact whilst on placement. 

Please note that if you have outstanding fees with the University/a sanction for non-payment of fees, your placement may be unable to continue.  It is recommended that you make all the necessary fee payment arrangements in advance of your placement approval to avoid the delays related to this and the possibility that you may not be able to undertake your placement.
