I'm guessing your a psychology student? What area of Psychology are you interested in?
Yeah I am! I'm interested in child development so I was thinking of maybe a primary school or a nursery but I think it's going to be hard to find a paid placement in these places.

It is really hard to find paid placement's full stop unless your degree is vocational I think. I studied Law and when I was looking for placements, the majority were unpaid.

You could try social services. But there might be schools looking for someone to work in learning support. Have you rung any schools up? Academies might be more likely to give you a placement though.

Hmm yeah I was thinking that , my uni states that it needs to be a paid placement so if I can't find one I'll just have to skip the placement year.

I've only emailed one school near me so far and was looking into some others but haven't asked yet. I think if a school was to offer me a placement they're going to offer me an unpaid one which won't work .

Good luck.
Also, if you're in touch with a teacher from school you could ask them whether your old school is willing to give you a placement?

Congrats to all those about to graduate! For those who may not be sure about the type of work they want to go into, or unsure on what they want from an employer, completing my dissertation questionnaire may actually help you (as well as being a massive help to me, obviously)!
I would really appreciate it if any undergraduate students graduating this year (or next) could take 5 minutes to fill in this questionnaire. It can be a great self-awareness tool to get you thinking about the sort of qualities you're looking for from your first job once you've finished with uni, which can help you to target potential jobs/employers. Thanks so much!

Cannot wait to get back to university in September - really missed studying whilst I have been on placement!

Anyone got any tips for returning to uni after a year in industry?

I reckon that's the easier transition!

Write notes, even if it's after a task. Improve tasks you do regularly over the year - for instance I have written a macro to do some things I was previously doing manual. Ask for opportunities or to help with work that interests you. And socialise with colleagues.

Just a diary to note meetings, timelines and tasks etc. I have never needed this at uni but it was definitely necessary on the job.

The 9-5 does take some getting used to especially if you are adding a commute onto that, but overall I have ended up with more free time than ever!
