Almost any student can apply to undertake a Placement Year. This offers you the chance to gain valuable work experience at a challenging level that will help prepare you for graduate jobs. There is an opportunity for you to pursue a Placement Year as part of your studies, receiving recognition within your degree title. This would be an additional year, which you would take between your second and third year of study and you would be supervised by the Careers and Placements team for the duration of this year. To learn more about the process and other students' experiences, check out this padlet.
Benefits of a placement year:
You will need to find and secure your own placement and Careers and Placements can help you through the selection and approval process. Full details about the Placement Year option can be found at york.ac.uk/careers/placements
