Yes.

See Immigration Rules: Appendix Student which says:
"ST 26.2. Students are permitted to undertake work related to a work placement, assessed as an integral part of the course, that meets the requirements at ST 17.1. to ST 17.3."

The requirements of the work placement are as follows:
"ST 17.1. A course that includes a work placement must lead to an approved qualification and the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies must be assigned by a student sponsor (who is not a probationary sponsor) if the course of study is below degree level.
ST 17.2. A work placement must be assessed as an integral part of the course and must not be longer than one third of the total length of the course, except when there is a statutory requirement that it must be so, or where ST 17.3. applies.
ST 17.3. A work placement on a course that is at degree level or above:
(a) at a higher education provider with a track record of compliance; or
(b) at an overseas higher education institution in the UK; or
(c) as part of a qualification recognised as being at UK bachelor’s degree level or above by a student undertaking a study abroad programme in the UK,
must not be longer than half of the total length of the course of study."
