Student Work Placement


 With more employers requiring experience as well as academic success, work placement is a highly valued component of the student  experience. MTU considers it to be a key element in the professional development of students, refining their skills in a real-world  context.

This commitment to student development means that each year approximately 2000 students, from a broad range of disciplines, are placed in organisations across Munster and beyond.

Work placement gives students the opportunity to gain an insight in to the working world they will be entering and the opportunity to put all that academic theory in to practice. It also offers the company the opportunity to obtain a skilled student for the duration of the placement and establishes new recruitment possibilities.

There are work placement opportunities in a range of disciplines at Level 7, Level 8 and Level 9 and the placement module can last from 15 weeks to 9 months. 

Work placement recruitment begins in September/October every year. We advise employers to let us know of their placement requirements as soon as they can.
