The project evaluated two work placement modules in the School of Music, Humanities and Media at the University of Huddersfield. We surveyed current students on their views of the modules, as well as consulting recent graduates and placement providers. As a result we have rebalanced the modules with less time on placement, and more time spent on classroom activities to increase students’ knowledge of the 21st-century world of work, their ability to understand and articulate relevant graduate attributes, and to improve their knowledge of, and ability to seek, placement and career opportunities. By involving the Careers Service and Business and Enterprise staff we aim to improve students’ knowledge of and engagement with these services.
