Placement allocation

Placement areas include Essex, Cambridgeshire and London. Some students (Paramedics and Physician Associate) will be on rotation placement, others will be in the same placement area for the duration of their course (ODP and Healthcare Science). Some placement locations and shift patterns may not be compatible with public transport.

It is important you are aware of the following:

  • We aim to inform all students of their placement allocation as far in advance as possible
  • However, the nature of healthcare provision does mean that circumstances may change at very short notice

On these occasions:

  • Some students may only receive two weeks notice or less of their placement allocation
  • It may be necessary to change a placement allocation at short notice
  • A start date for placement may also be delayed
