Work Experience Placement
A work placement will feature as key to the successful completion of the programme, and will take place at the end of Semester One (late May). The DIT recruits a fashion buying expert with over 10 years experience in the industry to coordinate the placement of each of their students in top buying offices both in Ireland and London. The aim of this module is to provide students with an experiential learning opportunity to consolidate the insights and learning achieved during the programme within the world of work. Students present a Reflective Learning Journal on completion of the work placement documenting their learning experience. This six week placement has proved to be a vital component of the programme with past graduates successfully going on to secure full time employment in these DIT-linked buying offices.
