Placements

A placement year is probably the best method to improve your degree and considerably raise your chances of landing a decent job or PhD position. Not only will you gain valuable experience and training, but UoG's placement students earn an average income of £12,000-14,000!

Finding a job may seem challenging at first. Nonetheless, the placement team will be by your side every step of the way.

 

 

Beginning the Placement

 

The student and the firm can negotiate the start date of the placement, but most start in July or August. Accommodation arrangements should be made well in advance of the commencement date. It's possible that the placement will be a continuation of a project started by a previous year's student, in which case you may arrange to take over their housing. Alternatively, the employer may be able to provide temporary housing for the first few weeks while arrangements are made. In any situation, it is the student's responsibility to contact the firm and make the required accommodations arrangements. If complications emerge, get advice from your academic supervisor.
