Module description

This module is available only to students in the Department of Government undertaking a six-month placement in the Spring and Summer terms of the second year. Students will undertake their placement at a host organisation. The student is responsible for securing the placement, with support from the University.
The module enables students to undertake a six-month placement (minimum of 15 weeks in unpaid and 20 weeks if paid) with an external Placement Provider. During the placement, the student will complete a number of assessments which enable the student to utilise and develop the links between the knowledge and skills developed in their academic course and the work-based skills developed in carrying out their placement role.
