Host a work placement student

The NUI Galway Work Based Learning team have an extensive network of organisation nationally and internationally that provide high quality work placement for our students that is relevant to their course of study.

We have extensive experience over many years interacting with organisation and have the necessary expertise to make hiring a work placement student as straight forward process.

In order to maintain high quality work placements and productive working relationships with organisations we understand that it is very important to inform the company of our expectations of what is expected from them when hosting a placement student. We also streamline the placement process so that it is easily accessible for the organisation and organisation can review, shortlist, interview and hire students in an efficient manner.

We also have some Employer FAQs around placement during Covid.
