Work placements

Our excellent industry links give you the opportunity to undertake placements and work in professional collaborations with expert practitioners. 

A number of our postgraduate Art and Design courses also offer the opportunity to do a year-long placement in industry. If you are on a tier 4 visa and are approved to undertake a one year work palcement, you will be granted a longer visa that includes the work placement.

However if you do not subsequently undertake a placement, we will curtail your visa which may have implications for any further Tier 4 visa applications. Any time added for work placements will contribute towards your time limit for studying in the UK.
