Postgraduate Placements Nottingham

Postgraduate placements provide short-term, focused and cost-effective access to specialist expertise that supports the strategic growth of your organisation.

 

Fixed-term support to improve your business performance

We manage 130 postgraduate placements every year in organisations of all shapes and sizes. Out postgraduates are bright, capable and have made an impact for businesses on a variety of projects, such as:

  • Scientific research
  • Support with market research
  • Improving business performance
  • Developing marketing plans

The placement process

Your organisation has the opportunity to work with high-calibre postgraduate students for up to 200 hours in the following ways:

  • Part-time (from six to 10 hours per week), over a maximum of 12 weeks.
  • Full-time, three-month internship.

Our postgraduate placements team will support you through the process, match you with the right student, and manage the administration. And if you’re an SME, there’s university funding available to support you.

There are no headcount or payroll requirements for your business – placement students are on our payroll, and our contracts cover IPR, commercial confidentiality and Health and Safety.
