Professional Placement Opportunities

Professional year placements are a fantastic way to gain vital work experience and improve your employability following graduation.

Students on all degree programmes are eligible to apply for a placement year.

You can apply for a placement at the start of your second year. The placement starts in the summer of your second year.

Your placement

You'll learn lots of valuable skills, and return to your studies with a renewed focus. Many students find that their results improve because of this.

Placements in the past have included large pharmaceutical companies such as:

  • Pfizer
  • Procter and Gamble
  • Covance
  • Astra Zeneca
  • GSK

You can also apply to smaller regional companies, both within laboratories and office based.
