Placements approval

Work placement learning that is part of a programme of study must be approved and regularly reviewed through the University's usual quality assurance arrangements.


This includes the detailed specification of:

  • learning outcomes
  • teaching and learning
  • assessment methods.

Placement modules, like all other modules, are subject to student evaluation (through student evaluation surveys) and staff review.


Each placement must also be approved by the relevant school or faculty according to published academic, and health and safety, criteria.
