Work placements

Work placement is an essential part of studies at the University of Applied Sciences. It is included in all fields of education and in all degrees. Students primarily complete their work placement in a work environment, that is related to their field of education. There is a possibility to use previous work experience or recognition of learning at work to work placement.

The aim of doing a work placement is to give the students an opportunity to apply their knowledge acquired in theoretical study and to develop their skills of independent work. Work placement seeks to deepen the students' skills, to orientate them to jobs in the field, as well as to support and complement their study as designed by their degree program. The periods of work placement, are intended to form a path for professional development. Thus, work placement must be versatile enough, and it must gradually become more challenging and demanding.
