Many of our students take a placement year as part of their course - usually between years 2 and 3. Here's how our Placements Team can help you secure the perfect role.
At ARU we have a dedicated Placements Team (PEET), offering tailored training and support. It's available from your first year, to make sure you're able to secure the best placement and work experience opportunities.
If you’re interested in studying a course with a placement year, or an eligible course where you can add a placement, it's never too early to take action.
“I have been able to develop personally in both confidence and competence. I feel that the placement, and the skills I gained, have helped me become more employable as a graduate and that more opportunities will be available to me.” Sarah, GlaxoSmithKline
“I would advise any incoming placement student to keep in mind that it is a privilege to have an opportunity to gain experience in your industry before graduation.” Maureen, Tecosim
“I have been able to develop various skills in such a short period of time and see real-life examples of what I have learnt in my university lectures.” George, CNH Industrial
You can find out more about the Placements Team and how to get in touch on the Career Centre.
