This course is structured for students to secure their own placement, part-time work or personal development project, which is approved by the School. An underpinning part of the course is encouraging students to reflect on their personal and professional development, and to make connections between their degree programme and the world of work. The course also provides students with an opportunity to assess their Aberdeen Graduate Attribute development and enables them to identify and evidence a range of skills and qualities that employers look for in graduates, including communication, team working, problem-solving, reflection and professionalism.
