Event Overview


University students on professional Health programmes can spend up to 50% of their time out on placement so it's important to do some research about where you might be placed before beginning your course.


In this short session we'll explore a few major elements of professional placements, some aspects that are standard across all courses, and some which vary depending on where and what you are studying.

This session will last around 30 minutes, with plenty of time for audience questions.
