Year-in-Industry Placements

King's has embarked on a widescale development of its placement provision, changing the identity of our students based within a research-intensive leading instiution.

With dedicated support for faculties integrated into our central Employer Engagement function, your organisation will benefit from bespoke local intelligence on our students, whilst also being linked to the innovation and partnership of our wider teams ensuring your organisation develops a wide-ranging partnership with King's.

We work with employers from all industry sectors to promote your year-in-industry opportunities, highlight the benefits that undertaking a placement can deliver to our students and support you throughout the process including through site visits, regular communication and building your brand on campus.

You can advertise placement opportunities on our vacancy board but we do recommend getting in touch with the relevant member of the Global Placements team beforehand to understand more about each programme's requirements and discuss the best ways to target these students.

A number of our health programmes including those in the School of Bioscience EducationFlorence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care  and Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences  also contain placement options, however we do not provide a central provision for these opportunities.
