Work placements

Career Development job shop

Many degrees at York St John include a work placement element. Some programmes will organise these on behalf of students, others will expect you to find and arrange a placement yourself. The Careers & Employability team can help you think about what you want from a placement, the kind of organisations you could think about contacting, and how to make the most of your time on placement. Occasionally we are also able to identify possible placement opportunities, but you should not rely on this as their are no guarantees we will have something that suits your needs.
