    The Partnerships and Placements team is keen to connect and partner with organisations both nationally and internationally to develop work placement opportunities that benefit employers and enhance the future career prospects for our students.

    Undergraduate students at Oxford Brookes University are provided with the opportunity to undertake a work placement as part of their degree, offering a fresh perspective and up to date knowledge and skills to an organisation. Our Partnerships and Placements team work closely with employers, academics and students to ensure all parties make the most of this opportunity.

    We are always interested in hearing from organisations who can host a student. Placement duration, tasks and projects can be flexible to fit round your requirements and depending on the course requirements. The team is also here to provide guidance on health and safety, and risk assessments prior to the placement.

    Please see our work placement policy and Employer Guide for further details.

    Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the content and nature of placements may have to change. This will be done in discussion with placement providers.
