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.

  • Placements can be undertaken at times most convenient for all parties and there is no set structure for how they must be taken; students could, for instance spend 1 day a week or every day for 3 weeks on a placement, as is suitable for the project, the student, and the partner.
  • Students must discuss placements with their supervisors before applying and should ideally be in the middle years of their degree; placements must start within the funded period of the studentship.
  • Placements must fall within the AHRC terms & conditions.
