PGR Placements

PGR Placements


Work placements and research placements provide experience of collaborative work and knowledge exchange. PGR placement will help generate professional networking opportunities for postgraduate researchers through collaboration and engagement with organisations outside of the higher education environment. By taking a placement, PGR students will learn to demonstrate key critical thinking and research skills through their subject-specific, interdisciplinary and transferable knowledge skills and better understand and articulate the impact of their research. 

Students can apply for the advertised placements or propose their own placement plan with an organisation that they would like to work with. Full details of the scheme can be found on ProGRess
