Some of our postgraduate courses offer a placement or internship,1 during which you'll work and apply your academic knowledge in a business or organisation directly related to your area of study.
You might also have the option to do a Practice Track or Consultancy Project instead of a dissertation.
Placements and internships usually last up to 12 months and can be based in the UK or in another country. Some placements are paid so you could earn a salary while you work.
During your placement or internship, your tuition fee pays for continued access to all University resources and support from:
- placement teams
- academic staff
- the Wellbeing Service
- the Students' Union
- the Library
On some placements, you'll pay a reduced tuition fee.
