Provide a student placement

At Sheffield University Management School, we actively encourage our students across all years to enhance their employability potential, by gaining employment experience, before they graduate. A student placement is when a student takes employment in a job role (usually paid), during their study time at Sheffield.

If you or your organisation is interested in working with Management students or graduates, placements are a great way to recruit both students and graduates.

About placements

A student placement can take place during the summer, or it can be a year-long placement in industry in between study years at undergraduate level, as well as immediately after their degree at postgraduate level, or working hours can be spread over a period of a few months during the student's programme. There are various placement schemes available to suit your needs, which you will find further details on our Business pages below:

Placements allow students to put into practice the knowledge developed on their courses, and also develop those vital professional skills, such as communication, team working and commercial awareness.
