My postgraduate placement experience

Dua Munawar shares her experience of doing a Researcher Academy postgraduate placement.

Researcher Academy postgraduate placements are designed to help you recognise the breadth of your potential and highlight future opportunities. Each placement involves a discrete project at an external organisation for which the postgraduate researcher acts as a specialist consultant.
