Placements

Micro-Placements Scheme

If you are a second year Music student, the micro-placements scheme is your chance to develop professional skills and improve your career prospects after graduation.

Under this award-winning scheme, the Careers & Employability placements team offers a limited number of short summer placements across a wide range of industries to the most motivated students.

Micro-placements last between two and four weeks and take place during summer vacation. Most of the placements are located in and around London, but requests for flexibility in location may be taken into consideration. All placements are unpaid, but they are recognised on the students’ degree transcript and all travel expenses incurred during a micro-placement will be reimbursed.

 

The application process

In order to get a place on the scheme, you will need to go through a competitive selection process which has been designed to boost your employability and develop skills required for the job market.

Students attend workshops, get tailored feedback on their CVs and cover letters and attend a short interview. Successful applicants will be offered a placement secured by the placements team.

To find out more about the scheme, second year students have the chance to attend one of several micro-placements presentations running at the beginning of the autumn term. You can find further information here.
