Are there any work placements on Community Development and Youth Work courses?

Community Development and Youth Work courses have 3 fieldwork placements, one in each year of study. In total students work 800 hours in fieldwork placement and is an invaluable experience. We do encourage you to gain experience outside of your classes wherever possible, providing it does not interfere with your studies, as this all contributes to your portfolio and transferable skills.

You will gain all the relevant skills required between your on-campus and fieldwork learning to transfer to real-world scenarios once you graduate.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Community Development and Youth Work Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Community Development and Youth Work subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

At the University of Bolton, we understand our students have different requirements and we pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide. Being voted No. 1 for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide, North West) is a testament to our approach.

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
