First of all, check your course guide to understand whether you need to find your own placement (or whether you will be provided with one). If you are still unsure, email the contact for your discipline. If you’re expected to find your own placement, this is where you find out how.

It’s important to know that it’s probable that you should prepare for your placement well in advance of your start date. You should establish now when you are expected to start your placement and take the steps to find it.
