    I'm not sure about Leeds University but what I do know about my Uni and placement, is they will try to attempt to get you a placement within the local area/county but their say is final, but no harm asking if you can do it home, but I doubt you can :-/.

    Good-luck

    I would think this is unlikely, as the University will have to use placements in the locality, plus I can't see your tutors from the uni being willing travel to see you in Newcastle. Most of them time you have to take the first placement you are offered as there is a big shortage of them for students
