Placement Student Awards, please vote and share

A campaign has been launched, celebrating the achievements of our placement students, and the transformative opportunities that host employers provide.

Every year, almost 1,400 Loughborough students take advantage of the opportunities offered by a placement. Many of them far exceed their placement brief and all of them report the various benefits the experience delivers.

Ten undergraduates have been shortlisted for the Placement Student Awards 2016. Drawn from across many academic areas, the finalists’ assignments range from masterminding social media campaigns for Unilever to input into the virtual build of the latest Bond car, the Aston Martin DB11.

Now, we need your help to decide the winners.

Please vote in each category for the student that has shown the most enterprising initiative beyond their placement brief, and share as widely as possible with both your internal and external networks.

Voting closes at midnight on 14 June and winners will be revealed on 16 June.

Later this month, short films of each finalist will be released to provide a further boost for the campaign, as well as positive examples of employer engagement.

Please ensure #LboroPSA16 is used, wherever possible.
