Host a micro-placement for one of our students at your company

Every year we work with alumni to host micro-placements – two- to four-week unpaid summer work placements for 2nd year students.

The scheme is growing every year, and we are always looking for alumni who can host a placement student in office-based organisations.

Contact us to find out more.


How it works

It couldn’t be more simple.

As placement host, you decide on your needs (dates, duration, tasks and a preferred student profile).

We’ll send you some suitable candidates’ CVs. You can interview a few candidates or choose the one you think is right.

Your company, Royal Holloway and the student sign a memorandum so everyone understands their responsibilities, and the placement is booked in.

  • Press Association
  • Penguin
  • Royal Albert Hall
  • Legoland
  • Gatwick Airport
  • Conde Nast
