What is expected from a student placement employer?
Salford Business School has over 3000 students who are constantly seeking a range of opportunities including short (eg 1 - 6 month) and long term (eg 1 year) placements and student projects, which can fit into their curriculum.
For a one year undergraduate placement a student will normally be based at your premises and paid to work alongside your employees. At the same time they are supervised by a member of academic staff.
For a short term placement a student could be working on a business related project which could be either on or off-site.
Please contact us if you have an opportunity for a student. Whether it is for a month or a year we can advise you.
What are the placement starting dates?
Undergraduate students are usually available after their exams finish in May. Postgraduate students are potentially available at many points in the year.
How can we help you to advertise your student placement?
We advertise student placement internally through student intranet and regular email updates. You are also very welcome to come and speak to potential placement students in the University.
We have an annual placements and graduates fair, which allows organisations to exhibit their employment opportunities and meet students.
