The term sandwich placement is another way of describing a placement and are usually a year-long. Students will take time out of their degree to work in the industry for practice in their chosen profession. It’s referred to as a ‘sandwich’ year because they’re usually sandwiched between the penultimate year and the final year at university.
A placement is designed to offer insight into their chosen profession, and give a student practical hands-on experience as well as all the theory stuff. Prepare to enhance your learning in a real-world environment, and learn additional and transferable skills, because a sandwich placement is super beneficial for future employment!
Universities that offer sandwich placements will work with employers, and sometimes your placement will be automatically assigned. If this isn’t the case, you may have to do the research yourself and find the best placement to support your career, good luck!
