I’m not receiving emails from you. What might be happening?
Make sure that our emails end up in your inbox and not in your bulk or junk folders by adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book or trusted-sender list.
Do we have to pay for the service?
No, our service is completely free to universities and students as we make a small charge to the hosting businesses.
What is a placement agreement?
A placement agreement (convention de stage, Praktikumsvereinbarung, accordo di tirocinio, acuerdo de prácticas) confirms that the placement is approved by you as a part of a student’s curriculum. It states the job description and dates of the placement and is signed by you, the undergraduate and the host business. The student remains enrolled in your institution for the whole duration of the placement.
How do we benefit from Placement UK’s service?
We offer you an easy, secure and free way to internationalisation! Your students will not only gain valuable work experience but enhance their English language skills and learn about the British culture.
All companies offering placements through us know what an undergraduate placement means. The student that undertakes the placement can be sure that his qualifications match the company’s requirements.
Make sure your students know we are here to help them by advising them to visit our web site and placing the offers on notice boards and intranet sites.
Can our students apply?
All placements are open to any UK or EU undergraduate, or graduate studying for a further degree, who can answer YES to any ONE of the following:
- do you hold a valid UK or EU/EEA passport?
- do you hold a current student visa allowing you to undertake a placement in the UK?
- if from outside the UK/EU/EEA are you studying full time at a university within the UK/EU/EEA?
- are you eligible for Erasmus+?
If your students can answer YES to any ONE of the above then they are eligible!
