The best thing about my Placement Year was living and working in London. Professionally, it meant working with and going inside the political institutions I’ve studied and want to work for in the future such as, Parliament and government departments. However, what is probably more important is that on a personal level it allowed me to meet new people while living in a great city. I am really looking forward to going back to London after graduation!
My placement year has both accelerated my professional development and made me into more of a well-rounded person in general. I would encourage anyone with the opportunity to take a placement year to do so!
