Non Practice Placements

Welcome to our Non-Practice Placement pages. 

For some degrees at Northumbria a Placement is an optional extra whilst for others it is a compulsory component.  The non-practice based placement comes in a number of different guises with variations in terms of year of study, length, full-time/part-time, paid/unpaid, professionally accredited or non-professionally accredited.  

Our dedicated Placements Team provide you with comprehensive support before, and during the placement.  We’re here to help with all your placement needs.

 

Placement Support

To discuss your placement, your wider careers plans and aspirations, we are now offering specialist careers guidance, employability advice and careers clinic appointments via video chat and careers workshops online. We will be using MS Teams for these appointments and workshops. It will work in any browser on a PC/laptop and in mobiles and tablets.

Practice-Based Placements

Different arrangements apply to students on programmes of study that include professional practice, for instance, in education, healthcare and social work where work placements are usually a compulsory part of the programme and are integrated in to the course structure. Practice placements are administered by our colleagues at Coach Lane Campus - please see their web-pages for further information.
