Industrial placements

Prospective placement students

Industrial placements are a key feature of the undergraduate degrees in the School of Creative Technologies. All of our full-time undergraduate programmes incorporate an optional placement year.

The placement experience is a valuable opportunity. As the number of new graduates increases it is now more important than ever to show potential employers that, as well as the knowledge gained on your course, you also have practical experience gained during a placement year.

Nearly half of employers rate relevant work experience as the most important thing that they look for in potential employees.

For more detailed information on placements please visit the Creative Careers office in Eldon Building which is next to the main reception.

Students on placement

Whilst on placement you are still considered to be a student at the University and will need to enrol online at the start of the academic year via the following link if you are having problems accessing this page then please contact the CT Admin Office in the first instance. 

It is important that you keep the university informed of any changes to your home and term-time addresses so that we can write to you during your year out. Please make changes via the student portal or by emailing
