Have you been thinking about organising a placement but don’t know where to start? Networking breakfasts are back! Join us for breakfast while you learn from industry and student panels about placements.

Hear industry partners talk about their expectations of placements and preferred qualities of candidates, types of projects embarked upon, and experiences with placements. Then, hear the student perspective as the student panel talk about how they found and approached placement organisations, share their lived experience of their placements and the key skills learnt.

Throughout the session, there will be opportunities to mix with the industry partners and with each other! The Graduate School’s Placement Officer will also be at the breakfast should you have any questions about the process.
