Putting Learning into Practice

Placement-based learning provides excellent opportunities for students to think through theoretical ideas in real world contexts and to gain transferable skills through applied, practical experience with host organisations.  

The Student Development Office supports four placement-based learning schemes:

  • MSc Placement-Based Dissertations
  • Undergraduate Placements: Social Policy (4th year students only)
  • Master's Placements: Social Work 
  • Undergraduate Placements: Social Work (3rd & 4th year students)
