Eligible programmes have defined UCAS codes that identify them as an undergraduate degree programme with placement.
Placements can be made up of paid or unpaid employment, research or study abroad. These periods normally attract a reduced tuition fee liability.
If you are in receipt of a paid allowance for your placement period, that is to say receiving a non-taxable payment which is not a salaried income, then you should be treated as if you are on an unpaid placement. If you are in receipt of a payment that is classed as taxable income by your placement provider or country of placement, then you will be treated as if you are on a paid placement. If your placement is ERASMUS this counts as unpaid with regards to the bursary.
You are responsible for ensuring your placement type is correctly reported to your Placement Team. Your Department Placement Team will report your placement type to the Student Records Office for your student SAMIS record.
