School of Applied Sciences – Placements
As an applied and inclusive university, Edinburgh Napier University is committed to helping all students build on the knowledge and skills they learn in the classroom by connecting students with industry. One example of our commitment to this is through placements and work-based learning experiences, which are available across all schools.

What opportunities are available to me? ​


A micro-placement is a short-term career exploration opportunity designed to provide mutual benefit to both student and employer, with students gaining an insight into an industry related to their field of study and employers a chance to meet with ambitious graduates. The Applied Sciences Micro-Placement Programme (formerly known as the Getting Inside Programme) is one of the most popular student employability programmes within the school. Unique to this school, the Micro-Placement Programme offers the opportunity for 3rd and 4th year Life Science, Criminology, Psychology, Social Science and Sport & Exercise Science students to apply for a one week work placement with one of our partner employers.
