Joshua Williams, Professional Development Module 2014/15

I got my placement via the bank of placements set up by the module's placement team. There was a wide variety to choose from but LUCIA instantly stood out to me because of the work that they do with NGO's.

Kirna Kataria, 4th Year, BA International Relations with French (Year Abroad)

When I then saw that the POLSIS department had an exchange agreement with Sciences Po, I felt that we were presented with a great opportunity; not only did we have the option of going to France to improve our language skills, but Sciences Po is also a world-class institution for Political Science and International Relations. I was particularly interested in gaining a French perspective on International Relations, which is otherwise a very Anglo-Saxon discipline.

Lilly Pye, Professional Development Module 2014/15

If I hadn't got the placement at The Children's Hospital then I wouldn't have been able to progress within my role now. The module has also helped me build my skills such as time management and commercial awareness, so skills not just limited to the charity sector but skills that all employers are looking for.
