The Placement Team in USW Careers have been busy developing some fantastic resources to help you find a placement (work experience), prepare for it, have a good experience, and help you to think about what you’ve gained.

The guides are available on the Student Placement Guides page in the Work Placements & Experience section of the careers website.

There is a Student Placement Guide which is designed to answer the questions you may have about your placement, as well as tip sheets on topics such as looking for a placement, looking for a virtual placement, looking for a sandwich placement, looking for a placement abroad, and a guide for international students looking for a placement.
