Embedded placements are typically unpaid but a contribution to travel or lunch expenses would be beneficial for the student. Of course, should a sponsor wish to offer payment then that would be favourable regarded by students.
A placement in the industry offers students the opportunity to explore a role in an organisation over a 6 – 12 month period, working on a full-time basis. Placements are completed in the third year, after the first two years of study. Students then return to complete their fourth and final year.
