**More about the Professional Placement Year**
A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study. Students can engage in up to 3 placements to make up the total time and are required to source the placement(s) themselves with support from the Careers & Employability Team.
Year 1 introduces you to the fundamentals of fashion design, including 2D and 3D practice as well as fabric sourcing and developing the relationship between fabric and design.
In Year 2 you'll be encouraged to broaden your research skills and further develop your personal design aesthetic as well as working on a live intern brief for a US brand.
Finally, in Year 3 you'll develop a more strategic perspective and negotiate a body of work that reflects your personal practice as a designer, drawing together your academic experiences and personal interests. You will draw together all you have learnt into a written thesis.

Cows. Sheep. Swans. Squirrels. The Newton Park campus of Bath Spa University may as well be a zoo. Overlooking the rolling hills of Somerset, this picturesque, postcard-worthy place is perfect for the lovers of the natural world. All the essentials are here: we've got the general shop, on-campus doctors, the SU (with their unbeatable pizza meals), and of course the Starbucks. Everything is so close, you'll be able to roll out of bed and straight into a lecture. Campus is peaceful and tranquil most of the time, although you may be woken up rather early by the mooing cows outside your window.
