Industrial Attachment is part of students’ educational development. This enables theoretical learning in the classroom to be applied to practical learning situations and encourages the application of theory and knowledge of inappropriate context. Industrial Attachment applies to all students. Students who are already working may produce a letter from their respective employers to show a minimum of six months of work experience in the relevant industry (subject to school approval) for an exemption to IA.

To be eligible for Industrial Attachment a student must have passed a minimum of 4 modules during their course of study.
