Placement Companies and Institutions

If you are a life science company and interested in working with a student, we would love to hear from you.

Support and opportunity

Our students on their professional placement year work in many roles. For example, they may work in laboratories or in office-based positions. A wide variety of companies provide a diversity of opportunities. We place our students with companies ranging from SMEs to global corporations.

Hosting a professional placement year student will raise your profile at Newcastle University. It will increase awareness of your brand.

We can talk you through the process and what it entails. We will support you with the application and selection process.

We also support companies and students throughout the year via regular contact and an organised visit.
