Obtaining a WBP

Recruitment of students can vary but often students are invited to attend an initial introductory meeting or interview with the host organisation.

If offered a work based project you must complete the ‘Work Based MSc Project Agreement'.

Ensure from the outset that:

  1. You and the organisation are clear about your responsibilities to the organisation and to the university
  2. That the organisation understands the university deadlines and requirements that you are obliged to meet

Ask your host organisation supervisor to fill in the safety and sign the completed.

You must also read and accept The to find out about the responsibilities and liabilities of all parties.
