Micro-Placements - a way to develop your skills in the workplace

The Micro-Placement scheme offers paid opportunities that will enable you to take on real responsibility by working on live projects, or with services/facilities delivered within the University.

Please note that currently many Micro-Placements are remote.

  • You will be a part of a selection process where you will receive constructive feedback.
  • You will gain experience that will allow you to stand out in applications.
  • You will develop your confidence and resilience.

The Micro-Placements are flexible to fit in with your studies, usually you will work between 2 and 4 hours a week for a maximum of 30 hours duration.  

These Micro-Placements are open to current University of Suffolk students studying in the following locations:  Ipswich, East Coast College, Suffolk New College, and West Suffolk College.
