Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences placements

We work with students and employers to provide placement opportunities for people studying a range of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Placement opportunities and awards

Placements give students the chance to be valued members of real-world working teams, gain career path insights, and get vital experience. They can be done in the UK and overseas. We also celebrate our students' successes with an annual awards ceremony.

Our support

Our dedicated placements team offer support and advice to our students, and work with organisations to provide mutually beneficial opportunities.

Work with students from highly-ranked courses

We work with a range of organisations to match our talented students with the right employers. These organisations can benefit greatly from employing our undergraduate and postgraduate students on professional work placements.

Placement stories

Our students and placement providers share their experiences.
