Aims/Description: This module enables students to spend their fourth year of the 5-year Integrated Masters working in a 'course relevant' role in industry. Students will secure their own, 9 months plus (fte), placement in a 'course relevant' organisation. This enables them to gain wide ranging experiences and opportunities that put their academic studies into context and improve their professional skills. Students will also benefit from experiencing the culture in industry, making contacts, and the placement will support them in their preparation for subsequent employment. Students will be expected to undertake at least 9 months in a relevant industry placement though the experience could be spread over 2 organisations or types of activity either simultaneously or consecutively. At the end of the module students will complete and submit a Skills and Knowledge record,a self-reflection and also a visual portfolio.

Restrictions on availability: Successful completion of the 1st 3 years of the 5-year integrated masters to an equivalent level of 2.2 or above

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Independent Study
Assessment: Project/ portfolio
