2020/21: careers, employability, Placements and study abroad

Plus Icon What careers support is available?

We are offering a blended operation over the academic year with some lectures and workshops offered face-to-face within programmes of study. We are also offering live and pre-recorded careers resources and events online.

We have adapted our provision to ensure that you have greater access to career development learning that is specifically designed to help you in a changeable labour market.

You can access more information on our student hub page and by visiting our dedicated careers site.

Plus Icon Can I access careers advice and guidance?

Yes. At present all our one-on-one services are offered online through live drop-in sessions and appointments, which will enable you to speak to our team at your convenience in a safe environment. 
We will review this as the year progresses and will respond to any changes in circumstance and Government advice accordingly. Find out more through our website.

Plus Icon What support is available to access placements?

The team offer services from one-to-one support advising on opportunities, applications, and pre-placement preparation, through to workshops and lectures to support students who wish to undertake a placement. 

Whilst we will offer some of our services face-to-face within the curriculum, we are taking a blended approach, offering some of our events and sessions both live and pre-recorded online. Our one-to-one interactions will be offered online to allow for ease of access, and to ensure students can benefit from our support at their convenience, in a safe and comfortable environment. 

For the latest information on our placement provision and the impact of Covid-19 please visit our dedicated placements site.


We fully expect that we will be able to support students who wish to undertake a UK based placement over the coming year. The current situation means that the nature and type of placements that could be available, will be influenced by the evolving situation, Government guidelines and the position of our employer partners.

We would recommend, where placements are a compulsory part of your studies that you liaise directly with the School for up to date advice. 

Plus Icon Can I study abroad in the 2020/21 academic year?
Our priority is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all our students. As you know, the coronavirus pandemic has caused much uncertainty around overseas travel. Many countries have imposed strict travel restrictions and social distancing measures which may last for some time. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all study abroad exchanges for the 2020/21 academic year. This includes exchanges due to commence in both September and January.
Plus Icon Will there be any alternatives to study abroad for the academic year 20/21?

We are hopeful that we will be able to offer summer school opportunities for the summer of 2021. If you are interested in hearing about these opportunities, please get in touch with the Study Abroad team on

Plus Icon Will I be able to study abroad during the 2021/22 academic year?

We hope to have our full range of Study Abroad opportunities available in 2021/22, and encourage you to regularly check the Study Abroad website for more details later in the current academic year.
