Many courses offer a placement or work experience out in industry or have a professional practice module or similar module. When you do a placement you are supported by a mentor, usually in your workplace. You learn how to apply and develop the knowledge and skills you have learnt at Brookes.
Placements can be key in applying and embedding your learning from Brookes but they are also important in improving your employability. Even short periods of different graduate level work experience can help you make decisions about your career after Brookes and enhance your CV.
“You need to take your learning beyond the classroom, by being proactive in looking for placement opportunities, which will give you an idea about the industry and the different areas that you can move into after graduation.”
Placements can offer experience of a graduate level job, key employment skills, professional knowledge and connections with a leading employer.
