placements for students since 1986.
Students who wish
to register must complete and return an Application Form together with a CV.

experienced staff. Your preferences as to the type of
company, products or services and the departments in
which you would like to work, and any other
information such as your preferred dates are then
summarised and inserted in our monthly Bulletin. This
publication is updated and distributed to hundreds of
companies on our database who have requested details of
available students on a regular basis. Additionaly, the
Student Bulletin is also displayed on this web site and
updated on a daily basis. Companies can then contact us
for further information on particular students.
Your details remain in the Bulletin for
a minimum of three months, unless a suitable placement
has been found. *Any additional insertions would be
subject to space.
In addition to placing your details in
the Bulletin, we will actively prospect suitable
companies on an individual basis.

speaking, many companies in the U.K. are reluctant to guarantee a
certain level of remuneration to students without having had the
opportunity to assess their abilities and levels of competence. In some
instances, companies make contribution towards students
expenditure during the training period even
if no remuneration was originally agreed.
When you complete your application form, please indicate if you require
a guaranteed minimum amount each week and if so, how much. Remember that
you are effectively competing with many other students for placements,
some of whom do not require any remuneration at all. Consider what is
the most important aspect of your training period. Is it to earn money
or to obtain experience relevant to your studies which will profit you
in future years?
