A 12 month Sandwich Placement provides a student with a year’s subject-related work experience within an organisation as part of your degree. A Sandwich Placement will help you to gain confidence and build your contacts within the industry. Many graduate recruiters give preference to applicants who have completed a placement and a large number of students who undertake a placement are offered a job after graduation from their placement employer.
