This week, the focus shifted to this year’s IHTM placements. Following the exam period, placements begin at the end of April and finish at the end of June with a 10,000-word dissertation based on the student's research completed by mid-August.

IHTM student presents their proposed placement

Students gave presentations about their upcoming placements in the form of a fellowship application to a funding panel. This provided useful experience of applications they may have to make in the future.

Following a literature review, students were asked to prepare the context and background of their research project, research questions and proposed methods. Placement supervisors and academic advisors were available for input.

The presentations were followed by questions and comments from the panel, and students were given constructive feedback to support their research project development.

Placements are international and cover a wide range of countries across Africa, Asia and South America.
