ASE offers a range of internships with prestigious organizations in the city, or within close proximity to Bath. Each student is allotted a placement mentor to oversee their weekly work experience, and spends a total of 100 hours in the placement over the course of a semester. In addition, they meet weekly to discuss progress with an ASE internship tutor, who guides them in the preparation of an 6,000-8,000 word paper (or equivalent). This paper, which develops from, and complements, work undertaken at the placement, forms a substantial part of the student's final assessment.
