Health placements

Health Placements

Compulsory work placements undertaken for academic credit, usually in a patient/practitioner context.

The College of Science, Health and Engineering offers health and professional placement opportunities for students with local and international industry partners. Students undertake clinical or professional education in the form of placements, fieldwork and other clinical and professional experience. These placements are the main avenues by which students integrate theory with practice, further develop skills through supportive professional environments and gain essential working knowledge.
