Our placement model
Types of Placement
Postgraduate Placements Nottingham offers two main types of placement:
- part-time (6-10 hrs per week) over a maximum of 12 weeks
- full-time 3 month internships
There is no formal limit on the number of placements an employer can offer overall, but due to the need to provide adequate supervision we recommend no more than 4 postgraduates are placed with an organisation at any one time.
Cost sharing and administration
We pay the placement student for their time and expertise through the University's temporary staffing agency, and the employer pays a contribution towards the cost of the project. The contribution depends on the type of project and the funding we have available at the time of the placement.
We will handle most of the paperwork but you will need to complete a few forms providing information about your business and the placement project you have in mind. You will also need to sign the contracts and provide feedback to us at the end of the placement.
