Placement Year

This course offers you the option to undertake a Professional Placement Year or Study Abroad Year.

If you wish to do so, you can opt to take the Professional Placement Year module or the Study Abroad Year module which both typically run for a full academic year between years 2 and 3 of your course. You are able to progress onto the relevant module if you have successfully completed the first two years of the course (i.e. having accumulated 240 credits) and provided that you confirm your interest in undertaking this option before the end of your second year, typically in August.

While the Professional Placement Year and Study Abroad Year modules you undertake are non-credit bearing but do not incur any additional tuition fees, if successfully completed, these modules will appear on your final academic transcript. In addition, if you complete this year, you will also gain an enhanced degree award title as the additional suffix of “With Professional Enhancement” if you’ve gone on a work placement and “With International Enhancement” if you’ve gone on a study abroad programme will be added ( subject to relevant assessments).

The Talent Team can provide you with a wide range of support services in order to help you apply for a placement opportunity.

Past students have worked with [Jaguar Land Rover, the Bugatti Trust and Imagination. Several students have had successful internships in London, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stuttgart and Bologna].

Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.
