The practical and theoretical knowledge of volunteering gained in Voluntering in Asia will be implemented within the placement. The professional placement and project is agreed on in advance through consultation with the academic staff of the School, the student, and the host organisation. Placements can be in any country in Asia although each project must pass a risk assessment. Students will be supervised by the host organisation with the academic supervisor monitoring the placement to ensure that the content, progress and outcomes are of an appropriate standard.
