Postgraduate placements

Our Postgraduate Placement Team works with organisations across Cornwall to arrange 222-hour consultancy level placements for postgraduate students (six weeks on a full-time basis, or spread over a longer period on a part-time basis).

For a minimum contribution of £2.03 per hour you can help grow your profit margins, invest in new research, implement or grow your social media, create new products – or anything of value which will work in the time frame. In return, students gain relevant work experience to progress their careers.

The project is delivered by Falmouth University on behalf of the University of Exeter and is part-funded by the European Social Fund. Contact the Team to discuss a potential placement.
