If you'd like to do a work placement while on your course or when you leave we can give practical help and information on how to find a place, whether it's for a few weeks or a full year.
On some courses a placement is optional, on others, compulsory. If you are studying a first degree on a full time three years course or are on a four year sandwich course, and are looking to secure a placement, we advise you to speak to the relevant staff within your School:
- School of Computing - we encourage students on any of its degree courses to consider spending a year in industry between their 2nd and final years of study. A placement year benefits students in many ways including the way in which it enhances their employability once they graduate. If you would like to consider this option, please speak to Vicky Lince (Placements Coordinator), Gordon Smyrell (School Manager) or email SCM-Placements@tees.ac.uk
- School of Science and Engineering - if you are interested in spending your 3rd year on a professional placement, contact Angela Waldock, Stephenson Building, or email email@example.com
- Teesside Business School - contact Victoria Johnson, email firstname.lastname@example.org
- School of Social Sciences and Law - please speak to your course tutors - make enquiries at your School information desk
- School of Health - please speak to the Student Placement team, make enquiries at your School information desk
- School of Arts and Media - please speak to your course tutors - make enquiries at your School information desk
