Confirming your placement

Once you've been offered a placement opportunity you'll need to request approval from UWE Bristol.

We need to check your placement role is a good academic fit and will allow you to meet the learning outcomes of the placement module and also have a duty of care to you and want to check you are going on a safe and viable placement.

You need to request approval from UWE Bristol by completing the Employability Activity Confirmation. Please note the confirmation process for placement activity taking place in the new academic year 2021-22 is not available. This will become available by Monday 19 April. Please check back here then when this section will be updated. 

Please note, due to unforeseen circumstances there is a delay in the Employability Activity Confirmation forms for 2021 being released. If you would like to be notified when the forms are ready, please email us at, we will then send you an email when they have been released and are ready for use. If you have any concerns please contact us using the above email address. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience during this time.

When the Employability Activity Confirmation forms are released, you'll need this key information to hand:

We'll provide updates to your UWE Bristol email as your placement details are processed and notify you when your placement's been approved.
