In a few words
"I am currently in my third year and am on a placement at a business on the outskirts of Huddersfield. The placement unit prepared us by giving us presentations and introducing us to placement students in our second year so we could see what we could do. Support was provided throughout the entire process including mock interviews, CV checks and even consistent emails to make sure we were still on track. When I started looking for a placement, the university provided about five pages of placement options that were available in my department. They also make sure that you are comfortable during your placement by assigning you a placement tutor who comes to visit you on the job and provides guidance and support. As for the facilities, there are many recruitment events that happen during the year and the university consistently sends emails to make sure you know when they are."
