Students are increasingly career focussed and appreciate the opportunity to work with employers at various stages during their time at university. The University of East Anglia currently supports four types of student placement, varying in duration and academic level, each offering both student and partner organisations a different set of rewards.
If you would like to discuss ways of working with us, or if you can't find what you are looking for on our web pages, please contact us. We always welcome the opportunity to discuss new ways of engaging with organisations.
