Great news – we’ve managed to secure £3000 to support students who are going on summer placement abroad this year, exclusively for engineering students! This means that six students can benefit from £500 each to help towards the cost of undertaking work experience abroad.
To apply for the bursary you simply need to complete an application form and upload your placement details on the placement database. We are taking applications until the 17th June 2016 and then all applications will be reviewed and a final decision made.
Whilst on placement, you would be expected to submit a 300 word blog/case study on your placement and a minimum of 2 photos capturing your experience.
Students going back to their home country to complete a summer placement would not be eligible e.g. Spanish student returning to Spain
Successful students will also be invited to attend a celebratory event in semester 1 of the new academic year which will bring to together students from all faculties who have participated in this scheme.
