Professional Placement Experience - PSCI5910
Students spend a year (minimum 9 months) working in an industrial or commercial setting, applying and enhancing the skills and techniques they have developed and studied in the earlier stages of their degree programme.

This support includes ensuring that the work they are being expected to do is such that they can meet the learning outcomes of the module.
Students will spend between 9-12 months working at the organisation hosting their placement.
