Work Placement Guide for Students


Work Placement provides an opportunity for students to gain skills specific to their subject or industry as well as the employability skills for real-life work. At TUS, work placement is embedded into the programme of study and benefits students in many ways:

  • An opportunity to put theory into practice
  • Allows students to make better informed decisions about future career choices
  • New skills and knowledge, personal and work related, are acquired
  • Students’ employment potential is enhanced
