**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.
Your First Year will develop your skills and introduce you to ways of nurturing your creative thinking and problem-solving skills both individually and in teams. You'll gain skills in audiovisual editing, interactive design and image manipulation, and showcase these through brief-led projects.
Year 2 takes this forward as you begin to specialise in a range of advanced level modules. Your core module will cover employment opportunities and start to think about yourself as a budding media professional, while optional modules range from digital and interactive media production to media writing. You'll also plan, budget and stage a media event with other students.
Year 3 will see you join Artswork Media in Bristol as you work on a variety of independent projects and develop your professional identity and portfolio, working with clients on live projects. Previous clients include Bristol Old Vic, Bath Film Festival, and Glastonbury Music Festival.

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.
