Sheffield Hallam provides lots of support to students looking for placements...
Erasmus provides grants for students who want to go on work placement in a European country as part of their course.
Thinking of setting up your own business whilst on placement? Check out the Placement Year Entrepreneurship Scheme.
If you are going on a paid placement you become an employee; support is provided by Access to Work and not by the University.
Some courses may incur expenses, especially if a student is on placement.
