All our single-honours degree programmes give you the opportunity to spend one year working for a company (aka sandwich year).
If you’re studying for a BSc, you’ll take your placement after your second year of studies; MSci students take the placement after their third year. Progression to the placement is conditional on good academic performance.
The placement year enables you to gain valuable work experience, which helps prepare you to move into the career of your choice upon graduation. Often, at the end of their placements, students are offered permanent jobs in the same company, which they may take up following graduation.
