Travelling to Placement  

We recognise that many of our students will need to travel to their placement. Wherever possible we will not expect students to travel for longer than 2 hours to a placement. 

However, if a student chooses to live outside the placement circuit, it may not be possible to apply the two-hour travel time limit owing to the geographical location of available placements.

Please see guidance on Travel information in the Placement Preparation section of this site:

Please also refer to the following guidance on the Student Guidance page in the Policy Library section of this website:

  • Travelling to and from placement safely
  • Student weather advice

Use of your own car on placement

Some students may be required to use their own transport to attend placement If this is the case it is the student's responsibility to ensure that their vehicle insurance covers them for this (Business Class cover – check with your individual insurance provider).
