Work placements

Our excellent industry links give you the opportunity to undertake placements and allow you to gain professional work experience. 

Some 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 placement, you will be granted a longer visa that includes the work placement. 

However if you so 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.
