At Bath, all undergraduate course areas3/4/5 offer a placement, sometimes called an internship, or study abroad option6.
During your placement, you'll pay a reduced tuition fee to the University instead of the full year's fee. Some placements are paid so you could earn a salary while you work.
Going on a placement gives you the opportunity to work in a business or organisation, apply your academic knowledge and gain practical work experience. Your work may make an impact on the world before you even graduate.
Placements can last between six and twelve months depending on your course and employer. You can even take a placement in different parts of the world.
The majority of students take a placement or study abroad so, when you return to finish your degree, you'll be back with people you know.
