Placement Year

Now you're on placement, you’ll be busy developing career skills and discovering more about yourself.

But don’t forget about your course – there are still things you can be doing to prepare for next year.

Things to remember while on placement:

  1. You’re learning new skills every day, so make a note of projects you’ve helped with, meetings you’ve attended, or designs you’ve had a hand in. It'll all enhance your CV!
  2. If you're an international student, you should be contacting us on a regular basis.
  3. Contact your Placement Tutor as soon as you can to see if you need to arrange a visit. It’s up to you to sort this out – and it all counts towards your course. 
  4. Check your Aston University email regularly, as we’ll keep in touch with you throughout the year..
