Work placement scheme Many postgraduate courses at Kingston University allow students to do a month work placement as part of their course.
The responsibility for finding the work placement is with the student; we cannot guarantee the work placement, just the opportunity to undertake it. As the work placement is an assessed part of the course, it is covered by a student's tier 4 visa. Invoicing on the placement courses is split into two stages.
The standard course fee is payable in year 1 with the placement fee invoiced in year 2. This amount will only be charged to your account after you find a placement and are enrolled on the module. You will not be charged this fee if you do not manage to secure a work placement.
