We all know that taking a placement year will boost your employability – it’s what makes Aston graduates some of the most employable in the country.
It’s for this reason that we encourage each and every student to take one.
A placement is a great opportunity to get a taste of the world of work, build your professional network, meet new people, and develop your skills. You can even travel abroad to work or study at one of our international university partners!
The placement year offers opportunities for students to gain new experiences to add to their CV. Find out more about the different options you have.
