Drawing on their own placement experiences, our speakers will discuss the positives and challenges of all things placement-related. This should be an excellent opportunity for prospective placement students to hear about what a placement is really like from those that have successfully undertaken one. If you are seriously considering a placement, attendance at this session is highly recommended.

Confirmed alumni:

Patty Miranda – Patty was on the Global Health and Public Policy programme, and her placement was with Participation and the Practice of Rights in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
