Placement in Focus Competition

Share your placement experience and be in with a chance of winning some great prizes!

Your placement year will no doubt be one of the most memorable years of your university life, and we'd love for you to share some of those memories with us in the form of photos and videos!

We appreciate that the landscape of placements looks a little different to just a few years ago, with a big increase in remote opportunities, working from home and the increased flexibility on how you can complete your placement. 

Therefore, we wanted to make sure the competition categories reflect all of the different circumstances our placement students find themselves in. We hope you enjoy getting involved by sharing your placement experience.

The competition is divided into three categories. You can submit entries for all of the categories, but please note you will only be shortlisted once.

Category One: On the Job

Send a picture or video of yourself on the job. This could be outside your office, at work or doing something work-related.

Category Two: On Location

We want to see your placement adventures: days out in a new city, time spent with new friends, or perhaps a photo or video of you in front of a famous landmark.

Category Three: From Home

We understand the challenges that Coronavirus has presented to all our students. With this in mind, we created the 'From Home' category. So, if you're working from home on your work placement, or studying from home on your study placement, we want to see photos and videos of your WFH setup. (Photos and videos with pets are especially welcome!)

How to enter

All you need to do is upload and submit your entry using the form below. If you want to enter additional entries in the future, just resubmit another form. 

The competition closes at the end of August 2022. All entries will then be independently shortlisted for voting. We'll then open a vote on the shortlisted entries in September/October 2022 where we'll find and award the winners.

Prizes

The winner of each category will win a pair of Powerbeats wireless earphones worth around £120!
