The University of Bath is committed to supporting placements (thick/thin/integrated sandwich modes of study) in order to enhance the vocational relevance of its awards and the learning experience of its students. All disciplines offered at undergraduate level provide opportunities for placements within the UK or abroad, either as a mandatory or an optional element. Despite the increasing competition in the UK, students from Bath have a successful record of obtaining sandwich placements. This is evidence of employers' confidence in the University's ability to prepare its undergraduates for the working environment, ensuring they develop transferable/key skills (communication, numeracy, IT and learning skills) as well as discipline-based skills.
The placement forms a significant contribution to a student's personal and professional training and enhances employment prospects. In addition, staff gain a direct link to research and development activities in industry enabling them to ensure that the curriculum is relevant and meets the needs of prospective employers.
For further information on placement students please contact the relevant placement tutor.
Alternatively, if you need placements which are suitable for any discipline, or summer placements, please contact the Careers Advisory Service to advertise in the Earlybird bulletin by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01225 386009.
