My dd did a placement year (HR management) she was paid a salary...approximately £18k year in an IT training company in Leeds)
She had to arrange it all herself and had several interviews with various companies before securing the placement- it's a very competitive process and Uni did not help , other than suggest a few websites to look at
It was great experience and I'm sure it helped with her dissertation in final year and she graduated with a First....she has now also been able to secure a graduate job with a recruitment company

It’s worth engaging early with the uni careers / placements team.
Find out where pre ious placements have been. Get help with cv and LinkedIn profile.
Look out for employer events at uni.
