Placements have proved effective in improving a student's employability and injecting innovative ideas into the host organisation. They are highly beneficial for both the student and the external organisation, and easy to set up.

With thousands of talented postgraduate students across economic and social science subjects, we are constantly looking for new ways to match research interests and organisational demands.
