Clinical placement is the cornerstone of all programmes in the School of Health Professions, whereby students develop professional knowledge and also gain employment opportunities. Undergraduate students take several different practice placements, in order to engage with all different types of practice in their profession and meet the requirements for registration with the professional bodies. The College prepares students and staff on their expected roles and responsibilities while on placement and manages the whole process closely, according to the partner University practice placement protocol.
Voluntary work, applied in a systematic manner in a field related to the curriculum, provides a unique opportunity for students to gain practical experience and improve their CV. The School of Health Professions strongly supports volunteerism and students are encouraged to undertake voluntary positions in organisations and support the voluntary activities that are organised by the College.
Conferences & Poster Presentations
The School of Health Professions participates in professional and academic conferences, so that students are informed about current developments in their field and extent their own network. Students also participate in conferences, by oral or poster presentations, to present their own work, based on projects or independent research carried out during their studies, to their tutors, fellow students, parents, professionals and prospective employers and the general public.
