    Placement

    I came across this sentence in my reading.

    " 2nd year Bachelor of pharmacy student attachment in community or industrial pharmacy"

    I think the right word should be " placement" instead of " attachment".

    Correct me if I am wrong.Thanks

    I think you are right. I think it should probably be placement. It is most likely placement if the person is looking for a job, for example.

    In BE, we use 'placement'- I have never heard this word used this way before.
