Students and businesses working together.
These are voluntary live projects or offers of work experience from local employers. You may find one of them suitable for basing an independent study, a project or a work experience module. When following up an opportunity, please follow the normal approval guidelines issued by your course. The opportunities have not been through any approval process by the University. Some employers might cover transport costs.
Providing that you are working with an organisation as a formal part of your course, you are covered under UW insurance policies. However, if you are volunteering as an additional activity to your studies, or continue with a placement after the module ends, this is a separate arrangement between you and that organisation and UW insurance does not cover you.
