Placement Scheme

The LAHP Placement Scheme aims to match the interests, skills and training needs of LAHP students with the needs and priorities of LAHP non-HEI partners, leading to a number of small/medium scale collaborative projects. Our placements provide students with the invaluable opportunity to build up their CV while studying with us, potentially opening up new career avenues for them.

These placements will enable students to develop transferable skills that can be applied to their PhD research, engage the public in fresh and interesting ways, experience a working environment in a different sector from academia, discover new ways of working and new methodologies, and develop their employability skills.
