Student Placements

There is a range of support programmes to provide information to international students on research opportunities and careers at an early stage. Corporate Development coordinates central programmes for students on placement in the campus institutes. These activities are often supported as part of scholarship programmes or organized in collaboration with university partners.

The structure of pre-university and student placements is coordinated by the Vocational Training Centre.
