Health Professions Placements: For Employers

Student placements give you the chance to work with employees who are enthusiastic and equipped with the latest skills and knowledge. You can offer them the chance to use their skills in a real-life environment and can really contribute to their learning. Placements should give students the chance to learn, should be challenging but realistic.

Students working in a laboratory

Students on each of our undergraduate courses must undertake placements as part of their studies.

  • Placements can take place in a variety of settings across Scotland.
  • It is important that each placement meets the needs of the students, placement organisation and of patients.
  • Students work under the close supervision of experienced staff, to allow them to apply their academic knowledge and develop their skills.
