Previous PIPS hosts

Below is a list of the organisations where our students have undertaken their PIPS in recent years. This gives an indication of the wide range of placements that are possible. The table will be updated at intervals.

Feel free to use the list as inspiration to give you ideas of the types of places you can go (even if that is remote-working at the moment). You may also wish to approach these organisations directly. If so, it might be worth checking with your local PIPS contact first to see if they have a direct contact at the organisation. Also check the list of advertised PIPS opportunities on this website, as some of these organisations advertise regularly.
